If we are going to talk about #1 contender at MW its gotta be Vitor at this point. He is on a 3 fight win streak at MW and has finished all 3 of those fights (Akiyama KO Anthony Johnson SUB Michael Bisping TKO)
this guy (weidman) is really eager to get smashed by the greatest fighter to ever step foot on this earth
Agree. Vitor could easily work his way back into contention, but imo he would have to do more than the other "fresh" contenders to get another shot... as with Okami or any other rematch.
I hope Chris can heal up quickly and they can make this fight in early summer... and go with Lombard or Rockhold from there, depending on how their fights play out... I like the idea of Luke getting a fight in the UFC before Anderson.. and CP is always game and very exciting... but you would think the SF champ would fight a top UFC MW.
