I must say I don't know the feeling, the 'moment', Vitor was in...but he's fighting at 185. His fight with Jones was pretty one sided. He accounted for himself in there with Jones, for moments. He lasted nearly 20 minutes. But his fight with Anderson was decapitation. Is it possible the taste of Andy's foot doesn't haunt Vitor in the slightest? You can't get away from the image. The UFC posterized him on the game. Andy's sitting right there!
Aside from whether or not Vitor should feel the way I think he should feel, the trajectory of his career points at the 185 lb belt. Not the 205 lb belt. I read and hear all the time, that Vitors not challenging for another belt any time soon. But if he's gonna be lighting up #1 contenders like that, you can make a logical argument that Vitor should be getting a rematch with Anderson.
I wonder what he was thinking?
