Ultimate Fighting Championship President Dana White told The Times his organization has struck verbal deals for Anderson Silva to defend his middleweight championship against Vitor Belfort on Jan. 2 in Las Vegas.

What, how was he screwed? He had his shot at Silva and lost, yes he had a few great showings but Vitor just demolished a former champ. And why would you want him to go to Strikeforce where there is minimal to no competition in the UFC. I'm quite confused by your tactics lol

It's all about what the hot fight is and what's gonna make money. Silva/Belfort is going to be FAR bigger than Silva rematching against either Hendo or Marquardt. There's no point in both of them getting a second shot, so a fight between those two makes sense. Silva/Belfort is the right fight.

Vitor has a good chance of beating him and its is fair because he just beat the former champ in less than 2 mins. Henderson took Franklin to a decision that some felt Franklin won. Beating Bisping wasn't really that much of an effort as Bisping played right in to Dan's hands. I would say Nate's is more deserving than Dan even. As Nate just beat a guy that was on a terror at 185 and was beating almost everyone by sub in the 1st round. But all that aside both have had their chance at Silva and both lost. Vitor is coming off 2 KO victory's over 2 X UFC MW champs. He also is the only one at MW that has a chance of standing with Silva.

Hendo in particular didn't just lose on a narrow points victory either he got his butt whooped by Silva too. I don't think Hendo deserves the shot either. He beat Bisping who most people on here (Not myself) reckon isn't a contender anyway?

Hendo's last 3 fights after losing to silva

Michael Bisping KO (Punch)
Rich Franklin Decision (Split)
Palhares Decision (Unanimous)

Nate's fight after losing to Leites

Demian Maia KO (Punch)
Martin Kampmann TKO (Strikes)
Wilson Gouveia TKO (Strikes)

Vitor's fights after losing to hendo which was at 205

Rich Franklin KO (Punches)
Matt Lindland KO (Punches)
Terry Martin KO (Punches)
James Zikic Decision (Unanimous)
Ivan Serati Cage Rage 21 TKO (Punches)

Each fighter is on a a winning streak. 2 of them were handled by silva. Hendo has been going to decision but for the bisping fight only because he wanted to KO him which he cant do to silva. i feel like he lost to franklin. Nate has been Finishing top guys but their striking is not close to silva. Vitor is still yet to ace silva plus he is considered to have the fastest hands in MMA which in every fight silva has always been faster so this is a new test. Plus he KOed to former champs with the opening minutes. But vitor has been know to fold under pressure. then again vitor is suppose to fully dedicated now. plus vitor.silva would make more money. It makes more sense to have vitor fight silva and have nate/hendo for the next shot fight; all on the same card too would be nice
