Report: Vitor refuses to fight Kennedy (or anyone) at 185 Pounds.
The UFC plans to schedule a fight between Vitor Belfort and American Tim Kennedy for the middleweight (84kg) went downhill. The wife and manager of Brazilian Joana Prado, who on Thursday received a call from Lorenzo Fertitta told Combate.com who refused the offer of the owner of the organization. Kennedy had already posted up on Twitter to come to Brazil to face Belfort. - It makes no sense Vitor, who is the number 1 ranking, fight number 2, number 6 or number 10 category. In his next fight in the middleweight division will be against the winner of Chris Weidman vs. Anderson Silva. If the UFC wants him to fight in any other category above average, we are available. Can be against anyone, Tim Kennedy, to Roy Nelson, but has to be in the 93kg division or weight married. Even in heavy fighting him. Vitor wants to fight, but in his category only if the title fight.

Frustrated Costa Philippou still waiting for first fight of 2013: ‘Just give me somebody'
Costa Philippou fought seven times over the past two years, so he's used to keeping a busy schedule. But the middleweight has yet to step foot into the cage in 2013, and despite the UFC's hectic second-half calendar, his name remains in limbo. So if it was up to him, when would Philippou like to fight next? "As soon as possible," the New Yorker flatly answered on Monday's edition of The MMA Hour. "I wanted to fight in Boston. That didn't happen. I know there's a show in Toronto on September 21st. My last fight was in Canada. The fans are great over there. It's a short flight for me, I don't have to change anything. I would love to fight in Toronto...
