Vitor Belfort feels fight fans are clamoring for him to share the cage with Wanderlei Silva once more.

Back in Oct. 1998, Belfort and Silva did battle under the UFC banner. It only took “The Phenom” 44 seconds to earn the TKO victory over Silva. Over 21 years later, Belfort is calling for the rematch.
