While he likely deserves a rematch at Anderson or a crack at the new champ, UFC president Dana White told reporters during the UFC 162 post-fight media event that Belfort isn’t even on the radar.
“Anderson Silva has gone undefeated since 2006 and has beat everybody and held the title. He deserves the rematch. Chris Weidman said that before he even fought him. Vitor is just going to have to wait – he is not getting a rematch. He can text, Tweet, write fucking letters, call his Congressman — he can do whatever he wants to do. He’s going to have to wait. Anderson Silva is getting the rematch.”
