”I’ve earned my shot at the title and I will fight whoever wins this fight,” said Belfort, while discussing his hopes to face the winner of Weidman-Silva II. “I just want to get in there and hear them say ‘the new middleweight champion’. I have a goal. I will defeat the champion and get the title.”

After relaying that he doesn’t care who wins at UFC 168, Belfort also stated the following:

“I’ll be even better when I return to the Octagon. I know it’s hard to believe that I can get even better than this, but I will. I’ve been training hard, and there are a lot of things that I haven’t done yet. My best is yet to come.”

“My ground game is getting better and better since I started training with Gilbert Burns,” Belfort said. “And I don’t even need to talk about my wrestling since I’m working with the Michael Jordan of Wrestling, Kenny Monday. I’ve been working a lot in both areas.”

Whether Belfort fights Weidman or Silva next, either fight is going to be huge.
