Feels like a placeholder fight. Considering the fight would be in Brazil, I wonder if this is an issue of bigger name fighters not wanting to deal with Vitor in Brazil?
I know Consta was looking/waiting for a next match-up and feels like a far more reasonable matchup ranking-wise, but it would also be a bigger risk of Vitor losing steam. The only other MWs of note that are available for Vitor would be Belcher(who's coming off 2 straight losses and I think may be on the shelf still with the eye injury) or Cung(who I think is shooting a movie).
