We’ve heard so much about this Vitor Belfort vs. Chael Sonnen fight now, that it was going to be at 205lbs and be for the Middleweight Contendership, but now we have some clarification on the whole thing. The fight will happen at 185lbs and if Vitor Belfort wins, he’ll be the #1 contender. If Chael Sonnen wins, I don’t know, we all collectively shrug?
White also confirmed that the Sonnen-Belfort fight would be at 185. When asked if it was for the #1 contender he said, "it is for Vitor."

So it looks like Chael Sonnen and Vitor Belfort will have to make Middleweight here, it also looks like the UFC has no plan B if Vitor isn’t licensed. Isn’t this all so much fun?
