Team Belcher Looking For Weidman Or Belfort To Step Up | UFC NEWS


“We think Chris Weidman is the fight out there right now. If we could fight anybody, if we had our choice, Chris Weidman would be the guy. I think fans, media and everybody alike has Chris Weidman as the No. 1 contender at this point, and after he beat Mark Munoz I think everybody has him as the No. 1 guy. I’m not sure what Joe Silva is thinking, not sure what Dana (White) is thinking, but if he’s the No. 1 guy, Alan Belcher would love to fight him.

You’ve also got Vitor (Belfort) sitting out there looking for somebody to come to Brazil to fight him, and we’re open to that as well,” Kawa stated. “It’s one of those situations where we want to fight, we’re looking for a fight, so we need one of these guys to pick up a phone and say ‘I’ll fight Alan Belcher,’ but these guys continue to avoid him and I don’t blame them.”

Malki Kawa, the manager of Belcher, recently told mmaweekly.com that his star middleweight fighter needs a contender to get his overdue shot at the UFC’s middleweight title currently held onto by Anderson Silva.

At the top of the divisional list is Chris Weidman and Vitor Belfort, however, are these the type of guys that Belcher should be facing?

  2. stephen riddle says:

    Give the talent a fight dammit!

  3. Me says:

    Vitor makes more sense then Weidman to face Belcher

  4. pc says:

    Weidman vs belcher for #1 contender.

  5. A.James says:

    Notice how he didn’t call out Lombard.

    • Dick Diaz says:

      we don’t even know if lombard is going to win his fight… they’re not going to call out a guy without even a win in the ufc…

  6. danielrchargers says:

    Weidman literally BETTER not get a title shot. Bisping has been at the top for so fucking long and people keep leaving him out, he would fuck up weidman and all of you Sonnen bandwaggon hoppers are gonna be Shutting the fuck up about Weidman when he gets his ass kicked by someone who takes him seriously.
    fucking bullshit man.

    • danielrchargers says:

      the dudes Good, but not #1 contender.

    • Ryan says:

      lol bisping would get destroyed by weidman and belcher would be all he could handle. Against silva lol? I wouldnt mind if he got the title fight actually. He doesnt deserve it but watching that tool get beat down always brings a smile to my face

  7. Dick Diaz says:

    i think Weidman would be the easier fight for Belcher of the two options.

  8. Not You says:

    He should absolutely fight Weidman. In my opinion, I had Rousimar ranked higher than Muniz due to Munoz being sidelined recovering from surgery. Munoz looked bad in the Weidman fight, definitely not a fight he should have been in.

  9. Fuck this guy says:

    Hacktor
