UFC 152: Vitor Belfort's 10 Best Career Moments
Ken Pishna/MMAWeekly.com

Vitor Belfort has had a solid career, but the former light heavyweight champion would undoubtedly love to wear UFC gold around his waist one more time before he calls it quits. At UFC 152, he'll have an unexpected chance to do that against current light heavyweight titleholder Jon Jones.

Though his past three fights have been contested in the middleweight division, Belfort was offered a late-notice title shot against Jones after it was turned down by top contenders Lyoto Machida and Mauricio Rua. Machida and Rua received their offers after Jones shook off a proposed title fight against Chael Sonnen, who would have stepped in as a late replacement for Dan Henderson at the since-cancelled UFC 151.

Needless to say, this fight against Jones provides a huge opportunity for Belfort, who was still a win or two away from another title shot in the middleweight division. An upset win over Jones would easily leap these 10 moments as the defining accomplishment in Belfort's career.
