    Best part of the article is that it is biased towards your point of view.

    It would be fireworks and a barnburner for sure! I'm gonna answer your question with a question of my own: Can Souza deal with Belfort's power? Sprawl n Brawl baby, all night long with that fight.

    - Jacare should have been facing a much higher ranked opponent in his ufc debut. (All due respect to Camozzi) It doesn't make sense to go from Camozzi to Belfort in the ranking of things.
    yes Jacare should of gotten a higher ranked opponent, which is why i'm saying throw him to Belfort and see how he holds up. Weidman/Silva is inked, Belfort is practically unscathed, why not make Belfort face someone else who is knocking on contendership's door while waiting for Weidman/Silva winner to get healthy after that fight in July? enter Ronaldo Souza..... So I guess Souza/Munoz then if you want me to go by "their rankings"?

    I don't see why Vitor would need to take a step back to fight Jacare. Also, as I stated earlier, I can't see Jacare's standup allowing him to make it out of the first round. His takedowns aren't strong enough and his set-ups will get him killed.

    Vitor's situation is perplexing to say the least. It seems he's not exactly worthy of fighting for the title given the losses to Jones (and the Jones loss shouldn't really be held against him since he took the fight as a stand-in for Machida) and Silva but I just don't see anyone at MW beating him except Weidman who's busy. Add in the TRT/Vegas/Cali thing and you have a real dilemma.

    ...he's still doing it wrong.

    If he has been tested by a reputable source in intervals short enough to prevent cycling, he should be hand out photocopies. He's treating symptoms--not the cause--of his PR concerns.

    Other than the winner of Silva/Weidman...the only fight I feel makes sense for Vitor is Okami at this point.
