Vitor Belfort's Brazilian tour continues when he meets final Strikeforce middleweight champion Luke Rockhold in the city of Jaragua do Sul.

UFC on FX 8 is set for May 18 at Arena Jaragua, which is located in the Brazilian state of Santa Catarina. The main card airs on FX following prelims on FUEL TV and Facebook.

The bout could have title implications for the middleweight division, which was thrown out of whack when Belfort knocked out Michael Bisping at this past month's UFC on FX 7 event. With a win, Bisping had been guaranteed a title shot with middleweight champ Anderson Silva.

Rockhold makes his octagon debut on the strength of a nine-fight win streak, which included two defenses of the Strikeforce middleweight title he took from Ronaldo "Jacare" Souza.

Rockhold has won a bunch of fights people thought he shouldn't win.  He'll be an underdog here as well.  I don't  know how to predict his fights.  He honestly doesn't seem like a world beating dominator at any aspect, but man he just wins and wins.

KingstonHawkeJr - I still feel like they should've done Rockhold vs Bisping to see who fought Anderson. Doesn't really make sense to me that they keep having Vitor pick off all of the potential candidates to fight Silva.

Why on Earth would Bisping be in a fight to see who fights Anderson when he just got KTFO?

I think this is a fairer representation but it's still pretty tiny to fit that much handsome under one roof:

MW division is suddenly looking pretty solid. These new additions - Lombard, Rockhold, Jacare, along with a revitalized Vitor, man, there are some great matches ahead.

Is this a team handball court (or whatever the proper term for the playing field is)?

They don't seem to play it much here in a America, but I got to watch it live at the '96 Olympics and man that was a fun looking (and rough) team sport.

Another fight out of the U.S.

Vitor's last 3 fights were all out of the U.S. I wonder if that has something to do with him getting approved to use TRT in the states, especially in Las Vegas.
