I agree Vitor should be the #1 contender. I also agree with Dana saying a lose could impact that position. I thought it was a douche move by Vitor when he said he'll fight for the belt at 185 or only fight at 205. It was obvious he wants that title match (which I can't blame him for), but is hiding from a chance of losing at 185 and losing that #1 contender spot as well.
It would be a negative hit to the weight classes if I fighter can get to the #1or2 spot and then stop fighting in that class, taking fights up one weight class and not impact their standing for a title shot if they lose. As a fan, I'm not interested in seeing guys trying to hack the system. Fight the best damn opponent placed in front of you at the moment and if you keep winning, you'll get a title shot. Sitting out (which has back fired on how many guys in the past) or now looking to fight up a weight class is bull....
