Dana White: If Michael Bisping Defeats Vitor Belfort He’s Next In Line For The Title Shot

If Michael Bisping (23-4) wants a middleweight title shot, then he needs to beat Vitor Belfort (21-10) according to Dana White.

“If Bisping wins, Bisping will probably get that next shot,” said White in a media scrum following The Ultimate Fighter 16 Finale. “If not, we’ll see what happens.”

Bisping vs. Belfort headlines UFC on FX 7 on January 19 from Brazil. If Bisping doesn’t win, White isn’t sure who will challenge next.

Current champion Anderson Silva (33-4) said he is looking to return this summer, where he will look for his 11th title defense.
