"much more proven and better ranked" doesn't mean much. (and i don't see how #9 at MW is better ranked than #9 at LHW, if we are really going to talk about rankings...)
Mousasi is a much more dangerous fight for Vitor today.
Hendo looked as slow as ever without TRT against Shad, nobody would give him much of a chance against Belfort, unless Vitor fights careless there is no way he loses that fight.
Sonnen could definetly wrestlefuck Belfort, but Sonnen doesn't do a lot of damage and Belfort would have a great chance of winning if he defended a couple takedowns. Anyway, Belfort could accept a wrestlingfuck decision a move on with his fighting career. Getting outkickboxed by Mousasi would probably make him think about retirement.
