The UFC will start its 2013 campaign in Brazil with a FX card that boasts a Brazilian competitor in every fight scheduled thus far. The most active middleweight in the division, Michael "The Count" Bisping, will look to finally earn a title shot against the legendary Anderson Silva sometime in 2013. To do that he must defeat "The Phenom" Vitor Belfort in what I'll go ahead and call the most important main event we've seen scheduled for FX thus far.
