"I deserve the rematch, so that's the fight I'm looking for," Belfort said. "If not him, I'm looking to get to be a contender of my division. Nobody made a statement with that, and I think the way I beat (Michael) Bisping takes me very close to the contender shot."

"I'll accept any fight, but I need to know where this fight is going to take me," Belfort said.

If he has his say, he'd rather go to light-heavyweight. He wants a chance to beat Jones after nearly pulling off the upset of the decade this past September, when he was installed as a contender after multiple opponents turned down the champ. A heavy underdog, he shocked the world when he popped Jone's right elbow with an armbar in the first round of the fight.

Belfort faded in later rounds and submitted in the fourth, but he the believes his near-submission is a much better argument for a rematch than the circumstances that put Chael Sonnen in the No. 1 contender spot.

"I'll be ready, and I have my people negotiating," he said. "But I want Jon Jones. I want his left arm."

He might want to start by actually competing at lhw if he wants a rematch with Jones. Lightning won't strike twice for Vitor.

Didn't deserve the first fight with either of them when he got it imo.

shit my pants laughing when i read this he fough jones for 4 rounds had a 30 second armbar that he couldn't finish and than got steamrolled by jones after, only to end up getting submitted himself by jones in the 4th round....his win over bisping at the very most earns him a shot at a title eliminator against chris weidman...if all title shot were decided by only winning 1 fight michael bisping would have faced anderson silva multiple times by now.

Seeing as vitor got dropped by one kick and one action alone in the beginning, the rematch with Anderson makes more sense than a rematch with jones. Phone Post

Exploits his friendship with Lorenzo too much. Didn't deserve Jones the first time. Doesn't deserve him again.

Vitor vs Weidman should be the fight too make, but for some reason you can beat a fighter who has done nothing to make himself a number 1 contender, took off a year, because of injury, and everyone loses their minds like Dana White, and think Chris Weidman is a #1 Contender.

Anderson Silver - Yes, he does. I want to see this.

You must have missed the first fight where, except for a 30 second armbar attempt, Vitor was thoroughly dominated and submitted. He did not deserve the first title shot, so please explain how he deserves ANOTHER shot after losing so convincingly and then beating a MW.

I am a Vitor fan, but I don't think he deserves a rematch with Jones. Silva, yes. Jones, no. If Vitor had rushed Jones more with his striking, I would say yes, but he did not.
