    Im agree in that point. Although if he wins the WSOF title and then he beat Khalidov (Khalidov called him after his last fight and KSW are in talks with Yushin) there is a possibility UFC resign him. I hope so, I definitely consider him a better test for a potential tittle contender than Costa, Carmon, Mu

    This guy is coming to get the belt. That is the state of MW.

    Until then , Weidman, Machida, Jacare, Vitor can have some fun.

    Why too much hype on a 36 yeard old guy who has beaten Derek Brunson after two very close rounds and decisioned Tavares? Sherdog buys hype so easy.

    I actually do like Romero, but can we see him beat at least a top 10 guy before we even mention him into title contention conversations.

    Did vitor get licensed?.....six months ago I would have said yeah, but things change fast and I dunno if he still has the spot. Vitor might have to take another fight in between.
    Have absolutely no desire to see jacare/rockhold2...at least not yet. If they both want to fight I say make
    Jacare vs vitor
    And
    Rockhold vs Loser weidman/machida

    Jake isn't in the UFC any more and GSP isn't going to be fighting for a while, if he ever fights again.

    You may as well need to see that before you come to the same conclusion. I am confident already. And I am aware I could be wrong.

    Lol...Why is it sherdog is so quick to annoint every black dude with some muscles "the next champ"?
    Hate to burst your "I love me some darkmeat bubble" but bisbing/kennedy beat yoel EASY(bisbing is to fast for him/kennedy is way too durable and won't need to defend the takedown,because his sub game is lightyears ahead)
    And Carmont makes him look like he doesn't belong(but will get no credit for it)

    Give it enough exposure(watch more of his fights) and you will soon realize that Yoel=costa..........
    They're both niice fighters, but neither dominates the div.

    He got knocked out by Cavalcante and was slowing down a LOT in the third round of the Brad Tavares fight. This guy won't cut it against the top 5.

    Weidman and Machida would both destroy him.

    Pretty sure that the results of the surprise February drug test are a major stumbling block in promoting Vitor as the top contender.

    If he tested under the T limit, and tested negative for all other PEDs, he would have disclosed the results, so it's pretty fair to say that something almost certainly went awry.

    With all the questions and media scrutiny surrounding Vitor, I think the UFC is going to make him take another fight before getting the title shot.

    P.S. : Romero is old, and has very questionable fight IQ.

    It would be wise for Vitor to take a fight while Weidman/Machida plays out. The winner most likely won't fight again until the end of the year.

    And obviously there's a huge question mark surrounding Vitor without TRT.

    This. He has looked pretty bad in past fights with no legitimate reasons (last minute fights/two week camp/etc). No reason to think he will ever break top five.

    I don't think vitor vs rockhold 2 makes sense. vitor should be next, after he beats Weidman he an defend against rockhold

    Vitor is getting the next titles shot. I don't see why anybody else should get the title shot in his place. He is the rightful number one contender and he will be the next champ.

    He could catch anybody. The odds of him doing so repeatedly against top 5 guys just aren't that high.

    Yeah, I know. Only now did I realise he literally didn't know Okami wasn't in the UFC. I thought at first he was fooling around since Okami leaving was huge at the time and almost everyone knew about that.

    machida will take the belt and defend it into his early forties, fighting 3 to 4 times a year. he will best silvas record and retire undefeated at middleweight

    I totally agree. He should have that next title shot solidified.
