Luke Rockhold's dominant win over Costas Philippou not enough to earn Vitor Belfort rematch ... yet Luke Rockhold did what he said he was going to do. The Former Strikeforce middleweight champion stopped Constantinos Philippou in the main event of UFC Fight Night 35, dropping the hard-hitting Cypriot in the very first round of their FOX Sports 1 headliner, which took place on Wednesday night (Jan. 15, 2014) inside Arena at Gwinnett Center in Duluth, Georgia. See how it all went down in our "Rockhold vs. Philippou" results and live play-by-play thread by clicking here. Following the liver kick heard 'round the "Peach State," Rockhold told cageside commentator Jon Anik that he was still pining for a Vitor Belfort rematch, in an attempt to erase the painful memory of going beddy-bye in Brazil last year by way of "Phenom"-enal head kick. And he even managed to sneak in a testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) barb in the process. The good news is, the win over Philippou puts him back into the mix at 185 pound ...

After each live event, the UFC polls various members of the media to update its rankings in each weight division as well as the pound for pound rankings. With only a couple meaningful bouts at last week UFC on FOX Sports 1: Bader vs. Teixeira event the middleweight division is where we saw the most movement. Middleweight Champion: Chris Weidman 1 Anderson Silva 2 Vitor Belfort 3 Ronaldo Souza +2 4 Michael Bisping 5 Mark Munoz +1 6 Yushin Okami -3 7 Costa Philippou 8 Luke Rockhold 9 Chael Sonnen 10 Tim Boetsch With his second impressive win since joining the UFC ranks, Ronaldo Souza has quickly moved up the middleweight ranks, landing in third after impressively stopping Yushin Okami whom previously held the same spot.

Vitor Belfort says 'earned' next UFC middleweight title shot through hard work, 'shocking' main event performances In case you didn't know, Vitor Belfort and Chael Sonnen have something in common. Their previous two losses have come to arguably the top two pound-for-pound Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) fighters in the world in Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Light Heavyweight champion Jon Jones and Middleweight champion Anderson Silva. But, that's where their similarities stop. When it comes to earning and receiving world title shots, Sonnen has parlayed his quick wit and gift of gab into dreams of gold, getting the chance to face "Bones" at UFC 159 fresh of his loss to "The Spider" eight months prior at UFC 148. Belfort, meanwhile, chooses to play the silent warrior role, letting his actions inside the Octagon speak for him. And if his last two knockout performances against Michael Bisping and Luke Rockhold are any indication, the actions of "The Phenom" aren't politely requesting another title shot, but ...
Vitor Belfort opts to let his actions inside the Octagon earn him another UFC world title shot rather than talking his way into them. And after knocking out Luke Rockhold and Michael Bisping in "shocking" fashion, Belfort awaits championship call.
UFC BEST KNOCKOUTS OF 2013 THUS FAR ~ 1 – Junior dos Santos-Mark Hunt - UFC 160 Belfort’s spinning finish of Rockhold was undoubtedly impressive. But not to be undone, Belfort’s countryman Junior dos Santos delivered the same kick and the same finish a week later, taking out Mark Hunt in the third round. But what made this knockout the best of the year thus far wasn’t just that it was a heavyweight pulling off a move with a high degree of difficulty; it was that dos Santos could have taken his foot off the gas in the final round and coasted to a decision win, but instead he upped the ante against a dangerous foe and went for the knockout. That’s worth a number one slot for sure. 2 - Vitor Belfort-Luke Rockhold - UFC on FX 8 For years, the mantra for anyone fighting Vitor Belfort was to watch out for his fast hands. Well, in 2013 opponents got a new problem to deal with: his feet. First, Belfort finished Michael Bisping in January with a flurry that began with a kick to the head. But then “The ...

Scores: Me - 52 Jeff - 51 Scooby - 51 Danny - 49 Middleweight bout: Vitor "The Phenom" Belfort (22-10) vs. Luke Rockhold (10-1) Predicted Winner: Luke Rockhold - Rockhold was the last man to hold the Strikeforce Middleweight Championship winning it from Ronaldo Souza and defending it twice (against Tim Kennedy and Keith Jardine). Rockhold is not neccesarily brilliant at any one thing but has a very good overall skill set. He shall be making his debut against MMA legend Vitor Belfort who is coming off the back of that brilliant win against Michael Bisping. With Belfort there is always that possibillity of an explosive KO, despite advancing years Belfort still has ridiculously fast hands but his cardio can let him down. As much as I like Belfort my feeling is that Rockhold shall survive some earlier scares and then go on to take the decision victory.

Just ask him, he'll tell you. Vitor Belfort can bolster his argument with a big win over Luke Rockhold later this month at UFC on FX 8 in Santa Catarina, Brazil. But does beating down the Former Strikeforce champion punch his ticket to the UFC title?

It's official. UFC on FX 8 gets the main event of Vitor Belfort vs. Luke Rockhold on May 18, 2013 at the Arena Jaragua in Santa Catarina, Brazil.
long-rumored bout pitting UFC veteran Vitor Belfort (22-10) against Former Strikeforce middleweight champion Luke Rockhold (10-1) is slated to headline a UFC event in Brazil in the coming months. Brazilian outlet Tatame first reported the news, which was later confirmed by UFC President Dana White. A date and venue for the event were not specified, though White expects the event to take place in the second quarter of 2013. White previously hinted the match-up to be in the works last month during UFC on FOX 6's pre-fight scrum. Given the state of the middleweight division, the bout will likely go a long way towards determining a challenger for UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva. A lingering shoulder injury has sidelined Rockhold, 28, for the last six months, sinking anticipated Strikeforce title defenses against undefeated prospect Lorenz Larkin in both November and January. After narrowly upsetting Ronaldo "Jacare" Souza to capture the Strikeforce strap, Rockhold successfully defended his belt twice ...
Dana White suggested Luke Rockhold's first UFC fight may be against Vitor Belfort, and said if Belfort can beat him and string up a few more wins, it would be hard to not give him another title shot. Presumably 185, although apparently Vitor is confused, having challenged Jon Jones last week. Should be noted that Anderson Silva apparently wants Rockhold in a champion vs. champion match. Dana also noted that Quinton Jackson had made over $15 million during his UFC career but was acting like an *** and shot himself in the foot with his behavior over the past week. Jackson is insisting he's done with MMA and spent one media session playing video games and barely mumbling answers to the press.
No deal is done and no contracts are signed but UFC President Dana White says right now they are looking at putting Former Strikeforce champ Luke Rockhold against Vitor Belfort later this year.
Middleweight contender Vitor Belfort has indicated his desire to fight a champion. Luke Rockhold finished his time in Strikeforce as middleweight champion. Sounds like a match to make. Pressed on future opponents for the former UFC Light Heavyweight champion on the heels of his spectacular finish of Michael Bisping, UFC President Dana White told reporters on Thursday that he's looking to put together a bout between Belfort and Rockhold. "Rockhold," White said. "That's what we're talking about." In the case of Rockhold (10-1), a bout with the former champion could be exactly what the fighter needs to raise his profile with the masses. The American Kickboxing Academy fighter rolled over the competition in Strikeforce and defeated Ronaldo "Jacare" Souza to win that title on Sept. 10, 2011. But Rockhold's rise came during Strikeforce's slow, painful downfall, so he's not yet as big a name as his skills would seem to suggest. For Belfort, meanwhile, the future path isn't quite so clear-cut. He's lost to both m ...
