Dana White had already stated Vitor Belfort would be next in line for Chris Weidman after taking out Silva for the second time at UFC 168. What was up in the air was where and when the fight would take place, especially considering the controversy behind Belfort and his use of TRT. Lorenzo Fertitta has confirmed the fight will be taking place in Las Vegas and although an official date has not been set yet it will most likely be in May or July. I am thrilled Vitor will be forced to fight in the US!

Now, with Anderson Silva’s dominance out of the way, it sure would be interesting to see Rockhold push himself back into contender status and fight, say, a Chris Weidman...

Dana White’s childhood friend and video blog star Nick the Tooth works on some jiu jitsu with middleweight contender Michael Bisping at the RVCA Sport Gym in Southern California. Wonder if he had any better luck against The Count than he did when he challenged Lauzon.
