He's 34-years-old but just as spry as ever. In fact, there's no shortage of fans and pundits alike yelling from the rooftops how the "old" Vitor is back and ready to wreak havoc on the middleweight division.
Now he's setting his sights on the top dog of the division, whoever that may be after Aug. 27:

Of course, Belfort's crushing front kick knockout loss to "The Spider" just this past Feb. doesn't exactly help his cause. And there's also the matter of the Chael Sonnen vs. Brian Stann showdown at UFC 136 in Oct., which has already been dubbed a number one contender fight.
But if God wants it to be so, then so it shall be, right?
