Publicly, Vitor Belfort's middleweight title shot is not a forgone conclusion. UFC president Dana White is cautious about guaranteeing the former UFC light heavyweight champion a shot at the winner of Saturday's UFC 117 clash between current middleweight champion Anderson Silva and Chael Sonnen. "I don't know," White said Thursday when asked if Belfort was next up. "We've got to see what happens in this fight on Saturday, but yeah, he's definitely in the mix." But a source close to Belfort says it's coming after tonight's main event. Yet White hinted that Belfort's shoulder still might be an issue and that it's keeping him from signing off on a return date. "As soon as he gets healthy, we've got to see how this all plays out Saturday and when Belfort is going to be ready," White said.

Belfort getting a title shot after one fight was a joke to begin with, but now he needs to get sharp again, I'd be pissed if he came in rusty.

Before tonight I would have said Belfort should get the next shot, but now I think Chael Sonnen should get an immediate rematch.
