UFC Quick Quote: Vitor Belfort is coming for Anderson Silva

"Vitor is a different person now. He really is. He's not that spoiled kid that we saw back in the day when he was building his career and got ahead of himself. His head is in the game, he's very focused and he's very secure with where he is in the game right now. Rich Franklin is no easy competitor. That told us right there where he's at. We're coming after Anderson Silva and that belt!"

– Xtreme Couture trainer Shawn Tompkins talks to FightHype.com about the future of Vitor Belfort in the middleweight division — specifically his place in line for the 185-pound crown, currently held by fellow Brazilian Anderson Silva. "The Phenom" is coming off a first round destruction of former division champ Rich Franklin at UFC 103 on Sept. 19 in Dallas. The stoppage — coupled with his wins in Affliction — were enough to convince Tompkins that "The Old Vitor" is back and ready to face "The Spider." But was it enough to convince the fans?
