Well, well, well. Who do we have here?
By George, it's former middleweight title contender Vitor Belfort.
Yes, the same Vitor Belfort who has become the unofficial poster boy of testosterone-replacement therapy. Well, what's left of it.
He's also the same Vitor Belfort who was on the wrong end of a Silva front kick back in 2011, which may very well be the most memorable knockout in MMA history.
Now even though it seems as if Belfort has righted the ship and regained his natural level of testosterone production, it's still going to be a headache for "The Phenom" to get licensed in the state of Nevada, which is where an end-of-the-year rematch with Silva would presumably take place.
That in mind, Belfort's long process of returning to the cage could very well mirror Silva's. Not to mention that the majority of the division's top contenders are locked up for the foreseeable future.
If the UFC was smart, it would make this the biggest rematch in UFC history. If Belfort was smart, he'd want to avenge the most notable loss of his career and have ample time to prepare for it.
If Silva was smart, he'd take a rematch against a guy whom he has already beat; it would be an international draw capable of putting him right back in the title hunt.
If you were smart, you'd close your eyes right now and wish it was December already.
