Vitor Belfort mener at om han vinner kampen sin mot Luke Rockhold så har han gjort seg fortjent til tittelkamp.
Belfort møter Rockhold under UFC on FX 8 den 18 mai i Brasil.
Følgende sa Belfort til Bleacher Report:
Let me be clear, I am not looking for a rematch with anyone. What I want is the belt. It doesn’t matter who has it.
I feel that I am starting my career right now. I feel young enough to keep fighting for a bunch more fights. I have been fighting and winning all the fights in my division. I think I deserve a title shot.
