However, in his last three fights Belfort has been on a tear, knocking out Michael Bisping, Luke Rockhold, and Dan Henderson, and now wants another shot at the middleweight title:</p>
According to UFC president Dana White, Belfort has earned the shot at the belt and even Silva - previously hesitant to fight him again after knocking Belfort out nearly three years ago -?? is on board with the rematch at this point.
"(Ed) Soares was telling me that Anderson absolutely thinks Vitor deserves another shot. The next move for him will be Vitor Belfort," White revealed today.
The same can be said for Weidman if he beats Silva for a second time, his next challenge will come from Belfort in 2014.
"If Anderson Silva doesn't win this fight, Chris Weidman and Vitor," White confirmed.
