Vitor Belfort Looking For A Piece Of Chris Weidman | UFC NEWS

“(Chris) Weidman, or the winner of the Cuban vs. (Tim) Boetsch. I’m waiting for my confirmation on the Rio card, see who’s gonna be my opponent. Nobody send me anything yet. I believe I’ll get an answer on that next week. Muñoz has no guard, he’s not a jiu-jitsu fighter. That’s a wrestler vs. wrestler match-up, who got to the top position would win. He was tagged, that’s it. I don’t care what [Weidman’s] gonna do. I know what I’m gonna do: Go for the knockout or the submission.”

In a recent interview with, Vitor Belfort analyzes the UFC’s newest middleweight contender and throws his name in the hat to face him.

Good move by “The Phenom? Or is Weidman the next big thing?

    good. let them fight. weidman will destroy him, but it will be entertaining while it lasts.

    • mean170 says:

      You must have missed the Weidman/Maia fight. If this fight ever goes down Vitor will swarm and TKO Weidman. Not impressed with a win over Munoz at all.

      • josh y says:

        you must have missed Weidman taking that fight on like 8 days notice and cutting over 30lbs.

        • mean170 says:

          I actually knew that due to the commentators making excuses all fight long for how terrible of a kickboxing match those two were putting on. I reiterate, Vitor would KO or TKO Weidman in the 1st round. And he thinks he can beat Silva? He knows in his heart that he can’t hang with the best at 185. Silva, Sonnen, Belfort, Bisping, Belcher; would all beat Weidman soundly.

        • Zulwali says:

          Dont be delusional. Chris weidman is a proper contender. He’s still young and he’s got some good qualities and enough confidents. He wont get knocked out man. whatever happends. it’s gona be a good match.

        • Brenden says:

          So your saying that the fact the he had taken that maia fight on short notice and cutting all that weight shouldnt have had an effect on his performance? Weidman has shown he’s a contender in his last fight by destroying a top ten fighter, which bisping belcher and belfort all havent done. The guy has shown with a full camp he can be a monster. You
          Give belfort a full camp and he gets injured halfway through it

        • Irie nation says:

          If you knew that then you would know how hard that big of a weight cut is on your body you incompetent cunt

        • Troll says:

          Haha looks like you have been listening to joe Rohan too much

      • ScarTizzu says:

        Who the hell has vitor punched lately? Rich Franklin. Um yep that’s it. Wiedman may be a purple belt bet you can tell he has that with world class wrestling. I’m calling Wiedman the “Spoiler” from now on . He would send vitor on with another loss

    • Mik says:

      Vitor is too good he is a black belt in bjj and weidman is only a purple belt, but weidman does have better wrestling. Vitor’s hands are just too fast if he hits you, it going to be a knockout.

      • Irie nation says:

        You know how much of a douche you sound right now by saying just cuz he’s a black belt he’s better?? That’s probably the most idiotic thing I have ever heard….last time I checked it was ultimate FIGHTING championship not ultimate bjj championship…you’re such a fag and you deserve not to post comments to this site…I recall shane carwin who wasn’t a black belt destroyed frank Mir who is a black belt….ranks don’t mean shit when you’re in a fight

  2. punchkick says:

    don’t break your hand bro

  3. brandon wheaton says:

    Belfort vs Lombard.

    Winner gets Anderson Silva (if he’s not too scared).

  4. If Weidman can get past Vitor he deserves to be Silva’s next victim.But what are the chances of Vitor getting through a full training camp without getting injured?If this fight happens i see Vitor overwhelming Weidman on the feet then getting a tko due to ground and pound.

  5. Devon says:

    I see Vitor being a really good test for Wiedman but I also see Wiedmans first loss! A in tuned Vitor is scary and could crush anyone. Then again we could be looking at future champ In Wiedman. This is a good match up for the fans! Do it Dana!

  6. Iceman says:

    Vitor is still in title contention and will smash anybody at MW.the only people that will put up a fight is weidman or silva.

    • T.DADDY says:

      Sonnen wud smash vitor.. when Weidman knocks vitor out vitor will have his excuses reaady just like when he lost to silva

      • Iceman says:

        People on this site are so fucking ingnorant and goes to show a lot of people on this site have little mma knowledge.Lol

      • KIDD433 says:

        @TDADDY…you said Weidman KO Vitor?your outa your fucken mind.Weidman is a can on the feet.See in Maia or Sakara fights…Vitor would fucken annhilate him.The only chance Weidman would have would be to Fitch himself a decision.Pretty sure that’s all that he would do

  7. Nick says:

    I can’t stand Vitor. He’s annoying.

  8. maurice says:

    thank you vitor! not even much of a vitor fan, but the guy probably would destroy all the current top contenders aside from Lombard…and thats a maybe. weidman aint subbing or outstriking vitor. bisping and stann dont have shit for vitor. i would luv to see vitor vs anderson ll. anderson will win again, but hopefully we’ll see it go a lil longer. either vitor or lombard, if not both need to get a fight with anderson. only way to beat anderson is by knocking him the fuck out, lombard and vitor have the best shot. weidman looks good so far. ill judge him when he fights a real mw elite.

    • KIDD433 says:

      @Maurice…Well said I agree

    • WrestlingRules says:

      AND who the Fuck has Vitor The Phlop fought that is a “real mw elite”?? Since 2006 he has fought:
      – Serati – Who?
      – Zikic – Huh??
      – Martin – yah he’s mw elite!!
      – Lindland – Ooooh another mw elite….rofl
      – Franklin – yep is he even top 10
      – Silva – Yes here is the mw elite…AND HE GOT KICKED THE FUCK OUT IN FIRST ROUND!!!
      – Akiyama – yah back to the elites…rofl
      – Johnson – yah another elite cut from the UFC..

      So just STFU with your bullshit picks. You obviously are CLUELESS Bitch…

      • Iceman says:

        Disagree with the vitor bashing but I respect backing up ur comments with facts.

        • WrestlingRules says:

          Vitor is good and I like him, but come on this guy needs to fight a top 10 then a top 5 then he gets Silvia again. The only good thing about this line up is that he finished these guys and he got finished. He needs to prove he can beat the best at 85 and the only elite he faced, he threw 2 – 3 punches in about 3.5 minutes then he got ko’d by a front kick for Christ’s Sake!!

  9. Jujitsu Player says:

    Weidman would be a bad match up and make short work of Vitor. I think he’d totally overpower him and pound the shit out of him. He should fight Bisping to determine true #1 contender.

  10. Ruhl says:

    Vitor Belfort is a bad match up for Weidman in my opinion. Vitor has ko power, fast hands and he is a killer off his back. I that señor beats Vitor Belfort then the Anderson Silva fight makes perfect sense.

    • Chad says:

      killer off his back???? Has he subbed ANYONE from his back?? lemme check that.. Nope.. not 1 sub win off his back… Weidman will take em down, and vitor will turtle, get his will broken and give up…

  11. mj says:

    weidman and Chael would not stand a chance with Vitor. Vitor has faster hands, more power, hard as hell to take down(says randy) and is a former world champion in BJJ. So they have to stand with him, without the crazy strikes that Anderson can throw. I am interested in Lombard… he is a Judo olympian and hit like mike. That is a real match, winner fights Andy. Or if you really want Silva to lose put him in with Jonny Bones.

  12. Me says:

    Don’t get me wrong I love Vitor… But it just annoys me when fighters pull out of a fight and come back asking for a top guy. Weidman beat a #3 Munoz and Vitor last fight was against a #20ish OutofshapeJohnson. Also it’s the same with Bisping… He losses against Chael, pulls out off a fight and declares he is the #1 Contender I mean common…

  13. CanILive says:

    vitor was just supposed to fight wanderlie… but knew if he somehow lost hed be blasted back with the dinosaurs…..

  14. maurice says:

    who cares if he pulled out the wandy fight and beat a fat rumble. ufc for watever reason is keepin him away from anderson by giving him a bunch of fights that doesnt lead him anywhere. vitor is looking ahead at the real top dogs. he wants lombard or weidman, and u cant tell me he doesnt deserve it. dudes a beast.

  15. NiggerDick says:

    Vitor will get fucked up by weidman, vitor is a has been now that he’s off the juice, everyone knows he was on it he was a fucking monster at only 20 yrs old.

  16. Xaninho says:

    Vitor should fight Lombard (assuming Lombard will win his fight). The winner of that one fights Weidman and the winner should be the next contender to fight Silva.

  17. Zack says:

    Here come the fanboys. Out with chael, in with weidman. The toughest guy he beat is mark Munoz. And who has mark Munoz beat? Munoz was talking about calling out silva when he should of been training. Weidman would get wrecked by Andy, chael, vitor and bisping.

  18. the daddy says:

    Give him Weidman, people are all aboard the hype train on chris, if he beats vitor then maybe he has the right to a little hype.

  19. Kingron84 says:

    What he is saying about vigor on his back is he has a great guard like silva and takes minimal damage

  20. chris says:

    Wow some people are retarded, sayingwho has Weidman beat? Maia was top ten and yeah he had the bad weight cut took.the fight on 8 days notice and still son. And now he dominates munoz who everyone swore would smash him. Vitor has never beaten a top 185. I’m sorry if beating akiyama and Johnson impresses you guys but how come he doesn’t need to earn anything ? Vitor should stay healthy and stop pulling out of every fight. Talking doesn’t get you top fights winnig does

  21. True MMA says:

    Weidman calling out Silvia is stupid. What does the spider have to gain beating up this guy but weidman fighting Belfort does make sense so come on weidman fight him.

  22. stephen riddle says:

    I want to see this fight! I think it would be a fast one vitor by ko!

  23. True MMA says:

    Way to many people riding the weidman hype train. All this is spider haters trying to find another wrestler to beat the greatest of all time. Before the Silvia vs sonnen 2 all the silvia haters were saying the same thing about sonnen. He was going to kill Silvia with his wrestling and look how that worked out.

    • WrestlingRules says:

      Not True!! I want to see ANYBODY close Silva’s eyes for days, wrestler or NOT. Let Lombard knock his head off!! So that makes your analysis WRONG…Got any other bullshit theories???

  24. Ko king says:

    Belfort by repeated strikes to the back of weidmans head

  25. CombatRusse says:

    Big up for victor because he’s not calling for easy fights at all
    He could have called out Bisping or Wanderly (no disrespect but they are no match for Victor).
    I would like to see him fight Wiedman just to be sure of Wiedman’s true level.

  26. maurice says:

    if weidman beats vitor then ill hop on the weidman train, until then i just dont know wat to think about the guy. like i said its hard to judge him when all ive seen is a lackluster win over maia and dominating a VERY overrated munoz. vitor had a point as well, munoz doesnt have a guard, he was almosted subbed like 100 times b4 the ko.

  27. A.James says:

    Make this happen Dana!

  28. Raven Blaze says:

    Chris is good but Vitor is explosive, has power and a damn good bjj game on the ground. I think if Chris doesn’t lose an he beats Vitor he would have had to earn that win cause that will not be an easy challenge for him at all.

  29. koolg says:

    fuck off vitor u scrub, u cant beat anyone and work your way up the ladder you gotta keep calling out the guys who are making shit happen, you worm your way into a fight then u train and hurt your pussy body and then its on to the next up and comer to call out when you heal up… fuck out of here girly man.

  30. MMApersonalJesus says:

    You can never count Vitor out with those hands. He lost to the Sith Lord (AS), but everyone will until he ages or retires. Vitor vs “The Cuban” will happen.

  31. DIck Diaz says:

    if this fight was to happen, i’d be rooting for a Belfort KO!
