Now that UFC on FX 7 is officially in the books, we can take a look back at the results in Brazil with an eye toward how the middleweight division is going to be restructured—be it in major or minor ways.
Chael Sonnen is out of the division, having moved up to light heavyweight. Cung Le still sits just outside the top 10, waiting for another chance to prove his quality.
A few fighters in the top 10 have not been assigned their next opponent due to injuries or having recently fought, yet they remain in the top 10 nonetheless.
Meanwhile, Munoz and Weidman need to get in action as soon as possible.
Now that Michael Bisping and Vitor Belfort have settled their differences in the cage, we look to the future and ponder where each fighter goes from here. The title waits for the next worthy challenger to appear and try to yank it from the waist of Anderson Silva now that Belfort has knocked Bisping back a notch.
Will Belfort get another title shot at Silva? Or will he have to collect some more wins in order to erase the memory of the first knockout and the notion that he can’t do any better a second time around?
