Can turn into a very good scrap but Vitor has a better standup game

This is a great fight and given the monster Belcher has shown himself to be I'll take him to win the fight but only by a fairly narrow margin. I would like to see Alan a bit more in the clinch because he's clearly devistating on the ground and has some pretty damn good and diverse striking skills.

Belcher riding a 4 fight win streak with his most recent win coming against Rousimar Palhares.

Thoughts on the (potential) fight?
Agree , fantastic fight

Ive got Belfort by knock out in a war

Good fight. Belcher is no joke, and he's definitely capable of making a fight out of it if he gets past the first round.

I'll be picking a Belcher decision.

I agree with this, but I think Belcher and Weidman would be a better eliminator.

I don't have a problem with Belcher vs Vitor, but what happens if Vitor wins? The only upside is a Belcher victory.

There is more upside to Belcher and Weidman. You have the solid pro vs the young upstart, and best of all, neither of them has previously faced Silva.

Belcher/Weidman is what I wanted to see, as well. Maybe put Boetsch in against Vitor.

Makes me think that Weidman will be getting a title shot.

Bisping should fight Weidman IMO...

He was robbed against Wandy and IMO he beat Sonnen too... either way for Vitor to get a shot again so soon would be madness!

The three top guys in line are Bisping, Weidman and Belcher


You can take Sonnen, Thunder and Vitor out of the picture as all three have been smashed by Silva!

Bisping is a points fighter that's why he will always be involved will close UD's.

At least Belcher has the balls to call out Vitor because nobody else seems to want to fight him.

It's actually nice to see the division so crowded at the top instead of bare like it was a couple short years ago.

Going by what I said, the Bisping-Stann winner wouldn't get a title shot. They'd get a title eliminator with Weidman. If Bisping's last two wins were Stann and Weidman, I'd give him the shot. If Stann's last two wins were Bisping and Weidman, I'd give him the shot. I think that's fair. The Belfort-Belcher winner would be next. I just don't see title challenger about Tim Boetsch at all. I'd test his credentials by a rematch with Okami or a fight with a proven guy like Rich Franklin.

It's a packed division at the moment. Good times.

bisbing vs weidman is a mismatch.

After belcher dispatches vitor with ease belcher vs weidman....winner gets a title shot.
