This just in via Belfort’s official Twitter account. Vitor has announced he expects to face the winner of tonight’s middleweight title fight between champ Anderson Silva and Chael Sonnen. As seen in Dana White’s recent video blog, UFC middleweight contender Vitor Belfort is in Oakland for UFC 117 and says he will be relocating to Las Vegas. He mentioned he would like to be closer to the going-ons – and now apparently has very good reason to.
