Alan Belcher Accepts Vitor Belfort’s Challenge

Alan Belcher just wants the opportunity to prove himself against the best middleweights in the world.

Vitor Belfort is looking to work his way back towards a title shot with UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva.

So, with neither fighter currently signed to face anyone, it seems a like a bout between the two makes perfect sense, right? Belfort and Belcher agree, as the two came to a verbal agreement via Twitter on Tuesday.

The planned date would be October in Brazil at UFC 153. If these two decide to sign a contract, that would leave Chris Weidman as the lone middleweight available out there with no opponent on the horizon.
