When news broke that Chris Weidman was out of his UFC 184 title fight against Vitor Belfort, Belfort tried to make a quick move towards a third division UFC title.
Vitor’s wife broke it down to The Brazilian Media:
“I made a proposal for an interim title fight: Romero or Munoz. Weidman’s style is similar to their style. I mean, they are right handed and wrestlers. The UFC said no and offered us Lyoto Machida but we turned that down. We thought it was better to wait until May. Our focus in camp was for a bout against Weidman. We are sad about the delays but waiting to make history.”
