White Wants Vitor Belfort vs. Chris Weidman To Go Down In Brazil

July 18, 2014 6:42 pm by BJPENN.COM News

“We want to make that fight happen. That’s the next fight. That fight should’ve already happened before the Machida. That’s the fight we want to do and that’s the fight that Chris Weidman wants. It doesn’t have to take place in Nevada. That fight would be big in Brazil, too. I would do it Brazil. As long as the commission clears him, yeah. We’d want the okay from Nevada, and if Nevada was cool with it, I’d do it in Brazil.”

During today’s media scrum (Replay HERE), UFC President Dana White discussed what’s next for his middleweight champion Chris Weidman.

Belfort was the originally challenger for Weidman prior to the ban on TRT. The ban forced Vitor out and Lyoto Machida, who lost on July 5, in as a replacement.
