UFC: Belfort vs. Silva-Weidman winner 'makes sense,' could happen in Las Vegas
(mmajunkie.com)
LAS VEGAS – UFC President Dana White said the promotion currently has no plans for Vitor Belfort's next fight, but it could include a title shot – and it could happen in Las Vegas. "There's no plans right now with Vitor," White said at Thursday's pre-UFC 160 media day. "He just fought. We'll see what happens. "It would make sense for [Anderson Silva and Chris Weidman] fight, and that's not far away. Those two fight, and we see what happens, or Vitor could fight again. I don't know. But he could fight either one of those guys."
