    Dana is right....Vitor is all over the place sometime. He called out Jones after beating Bisping. Makes no sense to me.

    Vitor should fight the winner of Silva vs. Weidman. Period.

    "Whatever his reasoning was"......

    Maybe because Tim didn't deserve that fight at all? Why won't Dana admit Vitor is the #1 contender, Vitor isn't in a "weird" spot, he is in the #3 Ranked mw spot behind Weidman and Silva IMO.

    Vitor is difficult because he didn't want to fight Tim Kennedy.

    Seems legit.

    Vitor is in the driver seat of his career. Good for him. The Phenom is at a point in his career where he feels he deserves to fight only the best and I have to think he's making the right moves here with Zuffa by the sound of things.

    I think he should be fighting Weidman, Anderson Silva or Chael Sonnen next.

    I would love to see him fight Cain Velasquez too.

    Vitor is the #1 guy at Middleweight, imo.

    Vitor would be taken down at will, gassed by the end of the second round, and then submitted.

    What exactly is Vitor right about? He went on a rant about how Jones was a diva because he tried to pick his fights, and then he turns down three.

    Holy shit bro, you should know it's against the rules to say negative things about Brazilian fighters.

    Vitor is in a weird spot because he wont get theraputic usage license for his TRT in the US because he was previously popped for roids. He wont be able to ditch the TRT now either.
