With UFC Middleweight champion Chris Weidman defeating former title holder Anderson “The Spider” Silva for the second time, the middleweight title picture is a little bit more clearer.

UFC President Dana White has confirmed that former light heavyweight champion Vitor Belfort is the next in line to challenge for the middleweight title.

In an interview with Ariel Helwani, Belfort discusses his “mission” to capture the title and mentioned that he would be ready to face Weidman as soon as possible.
