Vitor Belfort and The UFC

During a commercial break, Spike gave us another segment with Amir Sadollah. Usually these are pointless, but last night we got some interesting news. Apparently Dana White is fishing for Middleweights to challenge Anderson Silva. He named Vitor Belfort as someone he believed could give the enigmatic champ a fight. The reason this is interesting is because Belfort is under contract with Affliction. In recent weeks, White has teased fans with the promise of signing a Middleweight who would "blow our minds." Is Belfort that Middleweight?

I'm gonna say definitely.

While my mind remains in tact, it would be a significant addition to the division.

(By the way, has anyone ever parlayed their TUF win into a better situation than Sadollah? He hasn't even fought in the UFC since winning the show a year ago yet he's interviewing Dana White on Spike TV. It pays to be a likeable fighter these days.)

Would Belfort and Silva fight? Didn't they train together?

Belfort will fight and he will win

They were both at The Black House briefly but I don't think they are friends like Silva and Machida. Signing Vitor would be huge for Zuffa unless he gets beaten by Jorge Santiago, such an occurrence would make Dana White look like a real ass.
