UFC Quick Quote: Vitor Belfort must win 'a couple more fights' to warrant Anderson Silva rematch - MMAmania.com

"I expected that question. I actually was emailing and texting with Dana White because I knew that question would come. The answer, and Joe Silva said something similar, was that no that Vitor Belfort is at Middleweight again -- and the way that he lost to Anderson Silva -- the thinking is that he needs to win a couple more fights at Middleweight [before he can get another shot] at the belt. But, this kind of win has put him right back in contention and you never know how things shake out in the UFC. He's done himself some justice."
