    that Vitor called for a rematch versus Jones instead of Anderson. He takes out the potential #1 MW contender, and he asks for another crack at the LHW gold. It makes some sense but I think a run at MW gold is more attainable since Vitor resides primarily in the MW division.

    Coming from a huge Vitor fan for many many years now...he IS weird and crazy, especially after KO wins.

    He also clearly belongs at MW.

    BTW: I think it was more about trashing Sonnen than REALLY wanting the rematch.

    Vitor is amazing, brutal KO

    Guys he was doing that in case Sonnen gets injured, injuries are happening nonstop the past two years so he is doing the smart thing

    People seem to forget how close Vitor was to beating Jon Jones!!!

    If Sonnen does not get injured then he will fight Anderson most likely

    It was kinda odd, especially the Chael hate.

    LOL
    Jones beat him far worse than Anderson. Yeah he had 20 seconds of success, but afterward Jones dominated him.

    ESPECIALLY when you consider the fact that LHW is filled to the brim with contenders right now:

    -Chael Sonnen
    -Dan Henderson
    -Lyoto Machida
    -Alexander Guss
    -Mousasi
    -Cormier

    there's tons of people gunning for Jones

    but Anderson? It was basically
    -Bisping (if he beat Vitor)
    -Weidman

    other than that it was just superfights....

    So Vitor actually stands a good chance of getting a fight with Anderson if he asks for it

    That's what I was thinking. The MW division has a short line of contenders compared to the LHW division, yet Vitor calls for another shot at Jones while pissing on Chael.

    He is fighting in the MW division... beating the potential #1 contender is not too far from calling out the MW king.

    IMO, pissing on Chael was his main goal.

    I guess that makes more sense. He wants to fight Sonnen instead.

    I'm just saying that wasn't the place to call out another Brazilian fan favorite IMO.

    Probably because he nearly finished Jones.

    From what I've come to known about Vitor after all the years, he really takes the losses seriously and to heart, especially when he has trained well for the fights. So it's not out of the question that he would like to fight Jones again, I mean, we as fans think it's stupid, but he is a fighter and needs to believe in himself. BUT he also trashed Sonnen for quite some tme now and must know that he will not get another shot, he also talked more about Sonnen than Jones anyways.

    As for Anderson, he wanted a rematch after the AJ and Akiyama fights, probably just did not want to call him out in Brazil. Plus Dana already said he will not get the shot even if he wins vs. Bisping, which dissapointed him.
