UFC 173 Main Event: The Staredown

Well, it looks like Chris Weidman vs. Vitor Belfort may actually happen. Today, the UFC middleweight champ posted to Instagram a pic of him and the Brazilian facing off – which is indicative of the UFC’s PR machine’s wheels turning in the kind of forward motion needed to sell fights.

Since Weidman said that the bout is set for May 24, that means it will be at UFC 173 in Las Vegas. Does that mean Belfort is going to get his TUE for his testosterone habit? Who knows. Either way, it promises to be a great fight.
