"I always go for the KO and that's my expectation every time I'm fighting. That's my wish, I don't know what they'll decide, I don't know what the fans want to see and since UFC guys will evaluate the situation, saying who deserves a title shot or not... I want to fight for the belt and I'll run through everybody who stands in my way, that's my goal."

-- Maybe UFC middleweight top contender Vitor Belfort didn't graduate from the Chael Sonnen school of trash talking but at the very least, he's strong in his convictions. He's sticking with his story (via Tatame) that he deserves another crack at the 185-pound title. Of course, UFC President Dana White is in no hurry to give it to him after his brutal knockout loss to division champion Anderson Silva earlier this year. "The Phenom" winning his first fight back -- and in impressive fashion, no less -- represented a big step forward but he's not on the cusp of a rematch just yet. Thankfully, it would seem Belfort understands this, as this time around he added the statement that he will "run through everybody who stands in my way." That's more like it, Vitor. The question quickly becomes, though, who will be standing in his way next? You matchmaking Maniacs got a plan you can draw up for the Brazilian knockout artist? Let's hear it.
