Vitor Belfort is coming off of a devastating loss to UFC middleweight champion Chris Weidman and is now scheduled to face Dan Henderson at UFC Fight Night 77 on Nov. 7.

Ahead of that bout there seems to be a little bit of a shake up. Rumors are swirling that Belfort has left his team, the Blackzilians, based out of Florida, and could possibly be joining Jackson’s MMA or Jackson-Winklejohn, based out of Albuquerque, NM.

The camp known for fighters like Jon Jones, Donald Cerrone and Andrei Arlovski, just to name a few.

Belfort clearly did not look the same in his fight with Weidman. After an early burst and attack, Weidman was able to get Belfort down easily and pounded him out en route to a first round TKO win.

Do you think a change in camp could help Belfort make another serious title run?

Here’s a tweet explaining the rumor:
