Vitor Belfort could be looking at his third UFC title shot in as many calendar years after scoring his second straight knockout win in the UFC on FX 8 main event against Luke Rockhold.

The final Strikeforce middleweight champion, Rockhold would have been a strong candidate for a title shot of his own had he defeated Belfort in his UFC debut. However, after finishing Rockhold and Michael Bisping before him, Belfort is now at the top of the heap of 185-pound contenders.

Heading into Saturday's fights, Belfort was ranked No. 2 in the middleweight division behind upcoming title challenger Chris Weidman. Did that change with the results from UFC on FX 8?
