Vitor Belfort Interested In Fighting Chris Weidman, Hector Lombard Or Tim Boetsch

Vitor Belfort hasn't been out of the first round since 2008, going 4-1 since. This return to the fast winning "Vitor of old" was only ruined by a spectacular front kick to face knockout at the hands of middleweight king, Anderson Silva. For Belfort, he still has his eyes on another title shot.

According to an interview with Tatame, VItor wants a top 10 opponent in Rio and he has a few in mind:

"Or (Chris) Weidman, or the winner of the Cuban (Hector Lombard) vs. (Tim) Boetsch)," Vitor told TATAME, on his potential opponents.

"I'm waiting for my confirmation on the Rio card, see who's gonna be my opponent. Nobody send me anything yet. I believe I'll get an answer on that next week".

Assuming they want Weidman to get one more fight under his belt before giving him a title shot (which I don't think is the case), a fight with Belfort would be great.

Is there anyone else you'd like to see take on Belfort in Rio?
