With Silva vs Weidman II going down this December(in 5 freaking months), who should Vitor fight next?

A MW, a LHW, back to HW for Vitor??

I only listed 5 choices in the poll and an option for other, but the reality is there are many options for Vitor's next opponent. I've listed many more below.

Winner of Okami vs Jacare
Winner of Bisping vs Munoz
Costas Philippou
Tim Kennedy
Winner of Sonnen vs Shogun
Rashad Evans
Dan Henderson
Antonio Rogerio Nogueira
Cung Le
Wanderlei Silva
Gegard Mousasi
Other? (specify)

I want a "Golden Age" rematch we never got to see before, Wanderlei Silva vs Vitor Belfort II.

Second and third choice being rematches with Hendo or Rogerio. The winner of Shogun vs Sonnen being the next choice, would love to see Vitor against any of them.

I guess the order of what I'd like to see the most to least is Vitor vs Wanderlei, Hendo, Rogerio, Shogun, Sonnen, Mousasi, Evans, Jacare, Philippou, Munoz, Bisping, Le, Okami, and finally, Kennedy.

There are so many juicy match ups right now for Vitor. Lucky us.

I went with Gegard because I think he could beat Vitor.

Mousasi I think would benefit him most. Keeps his options open for both titles if some one were to drop out again.

I want to see Mousasi back at 185 and fighting Belfort. I think that's a very good fight. Their styles match up nicely imo.

The only thing that matters is dollars and cents, because if it don't make dollars, then it don't make sense.

How about Costa? I suggested him for Cung Le as well but he's a top 10 guy, when is he supposed to get back from his injury?

I would love to see Gegard try his luck at MW again and against Vitor would be a really awesome fight.

I wouldn't want to see Vitor wait too long to get another fight but if nothing is available for a little while I think Vitor vs Souza/Okami winner would be perfect

Unfortunately since Evans and Belfort train together it is very unlikely that will ever happen which is too bad because it would also make sense if Rashad decided to move down to MW

winner of Munoz vs. Bisping. Chung Le should be somewhere in there.

Hey Vitor, paint your face up like Mike Tyson, gain a hundred pounds, sit in the second row, and talk about when you meant something to the world, because your time has passed.....Welcome to Two-Thousand and Chael-Mousasi.

I almost feel like the rematch is too good to be true


On topic though Id go with a strong wrestler. No one specific. Just want to see if he can keep the heat off
