GOIANIA, Brazil – Following his first-round TKO of Dan Henderson at UFC Fight Night 32, Vitor Belfort's next move is simple – unless it's not.

Yet another article that conveniently leaves something out. They quote Dana and Vitor all the way up until Dana says, "whoever wins (Silva/Weidman) will fight Vitor Belfort, unless something crazy happens and someone gets hurt."

3 straight questionable early stoppages... makes sense.

My thing is that if he doesn't get a title shot then he will bottle neck the entire division and end up spending way too much time on the shelf. Remember a few years back how it was with only two destroyers in the MW Division, the division was one of the thinnest divisions in the UFC because nobody wanted to fight or could defeat Franklin/Silva...it took a while to rebuild and it can happen again. So let's just line them up, love him or not he has three high profile destructions in a row to Llyoto's one. Give the title shot to Vitor while Machida goes against Mousassi...worse comes to worse if Weidman/Silva has a trilogy then Belfort can do the LHW thing again.

After Anderson takes back his belt, let Vitor get knocked out again.

TRT can't save him from the Spider.
