This thing of fighting Anderson is something that I’ve never looked for. I care about him a lot, but started that thing of Dana White talks... I don’t care about fighting for the title, I want to do some more fights. I don’t have this ambition of fighting him (Anderson) now, I didn’t get in UFC looking for it, to take his belt… I never had that thing, I just want to do my work.

I know I deserve, that’s not the problem, neither the discussion, I just like to make some fights. The belt’s moment is gonna come, there are people that want to talk that I don’t deserve, but I don’t believe that. Anderson is not a guy that I want to fight, I support him a lot, we already trained together, I like him a lot. It’s not a thing that I want to... If the belt were on Nate Marquardt’s hands, if I could choose, I wouldn’t fight with Anderson because I care about him.

"I think I was misunderstood in a quote about fighting for the belt.... My whole purpose to coming back to the UFC is to win the belt!!"

"Unfortunately recent articles took out of context Vitor's words. Vitor shows respect for all fighters. Since he was 18 years old (his first MMA fight) Vitor never chose a fight. There is no such thing as a "wish list" for Vitor! There is only one simple priority to his career: CONQUER BACK HIS LEGACY."

FABIANO FARAH, Fighter's Manager


"I'm back to the UFC in order to conquer back my Legacy. This is my only and exclusive priority. With all respect to my opponents, I depend on them, since they are a natural consequence, to make this happen"

VITOR BELFORT, Fighter

I don't think Vitor woulld hesitate to fight Anderson, he just knows that he has to earn back a lot of people's trust in his ability to take down somebody like Anderson I think.

Simple solution, if he doesn't want to fight Anderson...sign Hendo and give him the shot, he is the most deserving anyway.

Let Vitor fight Marquardt, that's a great fight in itself.

Just let Marquardt get the next shot, its clear that Vitor wants it that way
