Vitor Belfort will return to the cage in less than two weeks time, as “The Phenom” is scheduled to fight “Jacare” Souza at UFC 198, on May 14th. If Belfort can get by the middleweight contender, then he very well could lock up another crack at the 185 title (provided Luke Rockhold defeats Chris Weidman for a second time on June 4th).
In advance of the pivotal bout, the UFC has posted Belfort’s 2013, stoppage win over Michael Bisping. The fight followed Belfort’s loss to then light-heavyweight champ, Jon Jones. It also marked the beginning of a headkick driven run, which saw Belfort also take out Rockhold and then Dan Henderson, before facing Weidman in 2015.
