Sadly, "The Axe Murderer" backed off and instead called out Chris Leben, eventually getting his way through a massive Twitter campaign. But where does that leave Vitor? He talked to Tatame:
"Lorenzo (Fertitta) called me and said he's trying to find me an opponent, but it's hard to do it. Wanderlei (Silva) challenged me and then started talking thing on the internet, so I don't know what's gonna happen. I'm ready, my dream is to fight at UFC Rio. I believe the fighters found out that I'm hungrier than ever to fight."
