Dana White noted during the “Inside The Octagon” feature during tonight’s The Ultimate Fighter 9 Finale that he was working on getting some 185 lb. fighters to face Anderson Silva. When asked if he could mention any names, Dana White mentioned Vitor Belfort.
“He [Belfort] is a former heavyweight who moved down to 205,” White noted. “Now he’s at 185 pounds. He’s got great hands, he’s good on the ground, and if his head is right, he can be a vary dangerous guy. I think that would be a great match up.”
Belfort is currently scheduled to face Jorge Santiago at Affliction: Trilogy on August 1st. Stay tuned to FightLine.com for more on this story in the coming days.
