UFC Middleweight Constantinos Philippou has been on a tear in the 185 lb weight class. Currently riding high on a five-fight win streak, Philippou recently departed from the Serra/Longo academy, which is now home to the world champion Chris Weidman.
With the Silva-Weidman rematch now constructed to take place in the year’s end, Philippou eyes a showdown with Brazilian slugger, Vitor Belfort, who just knocked his last two opponents unconscious with a pair of head kicks.
Philippou took to his twitter to request the match-up.
