UFC Quick Quote: The winner of Chris Weidman vs. Anderson Silva rematch is still a loser

Tom Szczerbowski-US PRESSWIRE

After three straight knockouts at 185 pounds, former UFC champion Vitor Belfort looks to grab gold one more time in his storied combat sports career.

"I don't care who will win on Saturday, because whoever wins will already be preparing to lose. That belt belongs to me. I conquered my space. I wanted the opportunity to fight for the belt, and here I am. The one thing the fans wanted to see is me getting the title shot. Now I am more than ready to be a world champion in another division."

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) middleweight number one contender (says this guy) Vitor Belfort is looking to pull off a rare feat, and that's win a world title in three different weight classes. After already capturing the crown at heavyweight and light heavyweight several years earlier, the mixed martial arts (MMA) "Phenom" (via USA Today) is preparing to add middleweight to that short but sweet list. But that won't happen until he fights the winner of Chris Weidman vs. Anderson Silva 2, the UFC 168 main event that takes place this Saturday night (Dec. 28, 2013) in Las Vegas, Nevada. Any Belfort fans out there hoping for a "Spider" rematch, or a 185-pound war opposite Chris Weidman?
