And Constantinos Philippou is looking to make UFC matchmaker Joe Silva's job a little easier.

"Belfort sounds good to me," said the Keith Trimble-trained striker. "NOT in Brazil!"

The Brazilian has come under fire from fans and media alike for his testosterone replacement therapy (TRT). Not necessarily because he's undergoing the controversial treatment, like several other notable fighters on the ZUFFA roster, but because he's had the luxury of competing in his home country and away from the watchful eyes of stateside athletic commissions.

Belfort hasn't thrown hands in the Untied States since knocking out Yoshihiro Akiyama at UFC 133 back in Aug. 2011.
