Is Belfort the real number one contender?

After belfort sliced through both Bisping and Rochold, does he have larger claim to the number one contender spot than current #1 contender Weidman?
On November 16th Hendricks became the real undisputed champion.

    Yeah he already deserved a rematch with Anderson before his KO of Rockhold Saturday night.

    Problem is Vitor has shown zero interest in actually fighting Anderson again. If Bisping would of beat Vitor it was said that he would of got a title shot. Well why didn't Vitor get a title shot out of it?

    Punchbag brought up a good point that maybe the UFC is having Vitor take out up and comers to free Silva up for a super fight, but I don't think Silva is the problem with making these superfights happen. It's the other P4P guys preventing them from happening imo.

    I'd like to see what comes out of all of this.

    Call me crazy but I think Weidman is a lot better and smarter fighter than Cockhold and Pissping. I would love to see him fight Jesusfort.

    Vitor would split weidman in two with an axe kick :D he improves his kicking game so much i'm really impressed, He was ''just'' a high level striker and now he kicks heads off shoulders!

    smarter than Cockhold, the black belt in score pointsu? i don't think so
    Yeah how could Weidman be smarter than a guy who fights an opponent with God's Odds, coming off a Highlight KO win, while keeping his hands low. That Cockhold is a brainiac.

    Beating Bisping was enough to make him #1 contender for me. Beating Rockhold in exactly the same fashion cements that IMHO

    He def deserves a rematch but at the same time he's been gifted strikers this whole time. Have him face a wrestler before fighting Silva again!!!

    Vitor has also faced the biggest legends of this sport: Couture, Wanderlei, Sakuraba, Liddell, Ortiz, Overreem, Henderson, Fanklin, Silva, and Jones. He almost exclusively fights GOATs.

    ....Im saying he's been gifted title shots by getting all strikers late in his career. Get off that Belfort **** fellas.

    Anthony Johnson is not a great wrestler. The most he's ever done is LnP on Dan Hardy.

    and he lost most of them lol.

    The fight won't happen because he will not fight in America which is where they would want it. He hasn't called Silva out once yet.

    Vitor would beat all of those guys easily (Sonnen not included, he is a LHW)

    Okami may have a chance, but he's too slow

    When your fighting nothing but GOATS, you wil lose a couple. Its better than taking nothing but safe fights and maintain an artificially good win/loss record.

    Belfort could be challenged by Weidman, Okami, and maybe Munoz. However, the rest of the guys you named would definately get buried.

    I didn't say he would beat him, but I would give him a chance to score a decision win even though I find it unlikely.

    There's no one else in the MW division who can claim the #1 contender spot but Vitor. Four fight win streak, last two wins over top contenders.

    Vitor deserves it next!!

    War Belfort!

    Hard to say imo. Bisping/Rockhold and Munoz/Maia are roughly the same level of competition. Belfort was way more impressive in his wins though. But you also have to take into account timing and Weidman was the only one that made sense. I don't really have a problem with Weidman getting the shot.

    Belfort is next in line if a super fight doesn't happen (it won't) that is for sure.
  • skullboneskullbone Posts: 1,950Free
    Vitor has definitely proven he's not done being a real contender. I've been impressed with him lately. He deserves another title shot.
