"I don’t know how long I will stay in this division. I wanted to do more two or three fights. If my body will no longer permit this big weight cutting, I will go up (to light heavyweight). I am not afraid of Jon Jones or somebody else ... It's not for me to choose my opponents."
Well, this is certainly an interesting development. Former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Light Heavyweight Champion Vitor Belfort tells SporTV.com (via Fighters Only) he's not afraid of the reigning 205-pound division champion Jon Jones, despite the path of destruction "Bones" has carved out in his recent title defenses. "The Phenom," who was unsuccessful in his bid to capture the middleweight crown from Anderson Silva, believes his days are numbered at 185-pounds and could eventually return to a higher weight class. But will the aging Brazilian still have the speed and power that defined his career by the time he gets to Jones, if and when such a fight ever takes place? Time to speculate Maniacs, it's what we do.
