Who will get the next crack at the UFC middleweight strap?

Champion Chris Weidman will defend his belt later this year against Vitor Belfort.

Just who will face the winner of that bout will likely be determined this weekend.

Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza fights Francis Carmont in the co-main event at Ultimate Fight Night 36, live from Brazil.

UFC President Dana White earlier this week that the winner of the fight, or the winner of the UFN 36 main event Lyoto Machida vs. Gegard Mousasi could get a title shot against the winner of Weidman vs. Belfort at UFC 173 on May 24.

Listen to White yourself at the 6:04 mark HERE

What do you think? If Carmont pulls off the upset, is he deserving of a crack at the title?
