    Default Sonnen/Belfort agree to bout at UFC 168

    http://www.mixedmartialarts.com/news...ut-at-UFC-168/

    Vitor Belfort has been asking for a title shot or at least a top level opponent since winning his last two fights in dramatic fashion. He recently turned down a bout with Tim Kennedy, but today challenged Chael Sonnen, who was quick to respond:

    While Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Middleweight contender Vitor Belfort is unwilling to fight Tim Kennedy or anyone else at 185 pounds unless it’s the champion (read explanation here), there is one fight "The Phenom" is down to accept.

    And that would be against none other than longtime rival Chael Sonnen.

    According to a report from Ariel Helwani on Tuesday’s (July 30, 2013) edition of FUEL TV’s "UFC Tonight," Belfort would "love to fight" Sonnen next, just as long as it’s not a Middleweight bout. Sonnen, who was on hand as one of the hosts of "UFC Tonight," said a fight against Belfort interests him immensely for UFC 168 on Dec. 28, 2013; however, there’s a catch to the situation.
    And if you want beef, then bring the ruckus

    You need to give your head a shake with that needing to make sense nonsense.

    the catch is that Vitor will have to put his #1 contender spot up if they do fight. Chael is a genius when it comes to business

    Ariel Helwani ‏@arielhelwani 3h
    Belfort's open to fighting before Weidman-Silva 2, though. Happy to fight at a catchweight. His wife said he would love to fight Sonnen next

    Ariel Helwani ‏@arielhelwani 3h
    Sonnen said he's down, but Belfort has to put his #1 contender spot on the line, and he proposes a fight at UFC 168 on Dec. 28.

    This shit is retarded. Why the fuck would a fight that isn't going to be at 185lbs have any bearing on the 185lb division?
    Hating on Anderson Silva before it was the cool thing to do.

    The idea of a "true number one contender" is the stupidiest MMA idea to be perpetuated by fans and media, EVER.

    HATES the new MMANEWS forum. Bring back the dark background.

    Sonnen is a genius, but it wouldn't be any where close to fair.

    If Sonnen would win than he could be the new 195# champ.lol Heck he already has a belt he got made just scratch in it 195# or if he loses maybe he could be the 190# champ

    mwuhaha...

    Mwuhahaha!

    MWUHAHAHA!!

    So many funny things about this matchup.

    There will be enough TRT in the cage for Overeem.

    So is this assuming Chael beats Shogun? Chael's name on your resume is like a golden nugget these days, especially if you're Brazilian. Vitor will wreck him.
