Shortly after Chris Weidman's win at UFC 175 Vitor Belfort calls him out and says the champ shouldn't "run away" from him.

It didn't take long before Vitor Belfort started calling out Chris Weidman. Shortly after defeating Lyoto Machida in a thrilling 5-round battle at UFC 175, the Phenom immediately took to social media to demand for his title shot.

While Dana White is currently interested in matching up Weidman with the #2 ranked middleweight, Belfort of course, still has some issues to clear up with the athletic commission stemming from a failed random drug test and a subsequent TRT ban.
