"I’m waiting for the UFC to decide my opponent. But I will fight on February 6. I don’t know whether is it against Anderson (Silva), though. That’s that thing, we never know nothing in the UFC. The things go on and we don’t know. I signed to fight in February and they already warned me about it. The opponent is [sometimes] changed near the time of the fight. Tito Ortiz recently had his adversary changed close to fight. We have to be prepared the whole time. Anything can happen in the UFC -- but I don’t plan to move up to the light heavyweight division."

UFC middleweight contender Vitor Belfort expects to fight at UFC 109 on Feb. 6 in Las Vegas — though he's not entirely convinced it will be against reigning champion Anderson Silva, who already withdrew from UFC 108 as he recovers from elbow surgery. "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 — propelled him to an immediate title shot. The only question now is, when will he finally get it?
