    I'd take Pettis over Faber or Vitor. Only fought twice, but was dominant and took out a solid champion in Henderson. Even when Faber was winning I still never got the feeling it was leading to a title. As far as gate keepers go, he's on top with a solid gold gate. As for Vitor, he beat a well past prime Hendo, vastly overrated Bisping and Rockhold who'll be fringe top 10 while in the UFC.

    Well, seeing that Segal's "secrete move" consisted of grabbing Gene Lebell's nuts, getting choked out anyway, and then shitting his pants... Maybe.

    Maybe not a dunce cap, but the fact that Steven Seagal was apparently responsible for the master kick made the hat a little duncey.

    I could certainly see that, but for me, it's a no-brainer.

    Belfort had the same chance to beat Anderson as Weidman did. He didn't. And then Chris went out and did it again, even more convincingly.

    Even if you're not someone who hates on Vitor for his alleged PED abuse [and for the record, I'm not] you can't compare beating a big chunk of the rest of the field to beating Anderson. Anderson was a giant, and the rest of the field was viewed as midgets in comparison. He was viewed as being on a whole different level. Any fighter he faced would be an underdog. Weidman knocked him out and was still an underdog for the rematch. There are guys who would bet the farm that Anderson would win third fight, if zuffa was dumb enough to book one.

    By contrast, Vitor has three solid wins, but all were over guys he was favored to beat. Bisping remains an overrated, under performing cash cow who would be softly-ranked at 9 or 10 [at best] if he faced more top 10 fighters instead of giving him fringe guys after every loss.

    In terms of contest, Rockhold was Vitor's biggest win, undeniably. It was a great win, but nothing compared to beating Anderson.

    Henderson is a shadow of what he used to be. It's a great win, but it's not like it was a legitimate LHW win. When two aging MW's decide to simply not cut weight for a bout, it's not the same as facing someone like Jones or Goose who is going to come in with cageweight closer to 230 than to 215.

    So no...the accomplishments weren't comparable. They wouldn't be comparable even if Vitor had never faced Anderson, and the jury was still out as to whether he'd be a threat. But that story was told already, and we already know the ending.

    At this point, Weidman > Belfort. Weidman's accomplishments in 2013 > Vitor's accomplishments in 2013--if not his whole life.

    If i've missed it in this thread, my apologies. Is Belfort a US citizen now? I know he's living here but not sure on what type of status. Reason being, he did not win International Fighter of the Year either. Seems he'd take issue with that as well.

    I see his point of complaint, he's put up some good wins in spectacular fashion. All PED and stupid ef'in haircut jabs aside, he's had one of the top performances of the year.

    Unfortunately, Weidman has walked into the cage with one of the best in the business and walked out twice with the definitive win. And these fights were for the championship title. And that means something more than beating a #3, 4, and/or 5.
