Vitor Belfort has lost to the current light heavyweight and middleweight champions in his past five fights, but he's determined to get another crack at UFC gold, and he just might with an impressive win over Luke Rockhold in the UFC on FX 8 main event. In his most recent outing, Belfort stopped Michael Bisping, who would have earned a title shot himself with a victory in that matchup.

Rockhold will be making his Octagon debut against Belfort, a former UFC champion. Before the collapse of his former promotion, Rockhold defended the Strikeforce middleweight title on two occasions. With those title defenses, Rockhold became recognized as one of the top 185-pound fighters in the world. He can prove that hype was deserved by beating Belfort on Saturday.

Sandwiched between two major UFC pay-per-views, UFC on FX 8 may be flying under the radar. Still, the feature fight showcasing two top-five UFC middleweights will carry major implications for the 185-pound division and is certainly worth watching.

Let's take a look at whether Belfort or Rockhold is more likely to walk away with a big win.
