MANCHESTER – Dana White seldom makes bookings for his fighters right after a show is over, but sometimes he starts to steer things in a direction if he can't book a bout outright.

Dana said this in an interview a couple weeks ago.

Lyoto would destroy Belfort.

Worst possible match for Vitor...Vitor is a counter puncher and would get absolutely picked apart by Machida's range and ability to stay out of harms way.

They should just do the Mousasi fight since Belfort is fighting Hendo.

I agree, the only reason they wouldn't is because Mousassi doesn't have the same draw with the common fans...really he beat a relative no name fighter by crappy decision when he could have proven his greatness. No one to blame for that really.

I agree with everything but is Vitor really a counter puncher? Isn't he more of a punches in bunches bumrusher? Either way, this would be a fight I really want to see.

Vitor needs to either stay at 185 or go up to 205.

Crazy that he hasn't fought Shogun or wandy yet in the UFC

Prepare for another front kick to the face, Vitor.

Agreed.

Mousasi has been proving himself for years now. Let the man fight a decent opponent.

He's might throw punches in bunches but he waits and finds his openings. This was precisely how Andy front kicked him in the face and why he's struggled against wrestlers at times.

Yes. Watch Machida kick the TRT out of Belfort if this happens.

I'd actually like to see Machida v Bisping.

He's both.

He likes to wait for an opening and then explode into it.

I think everyone here is underestimating Vitor though. Don't get me wrong, I'd pick Machida (and I'm a huge fan) but Vitor is not a cake walk for anyone. On top of his crazy speed, he's actually a really technically sound and increasingly diverse striker.

If Belfort doesn't knock him out in the first, Machida will RUN AWAY with the decision.
