Vitor likely loses to Weidman, Silva, Sonnen, Okami, and maybe Munoz at MW. Yeah he's looked good lately, but like FSW said, he can ONLY fight in Brazil right now and he's obviously juiced to the gills.

 

You really think the UFC wants to risk a MW champ that can't fight in the USA? Especially not in Nevada where Kizer has said they would not license him... No, they don't want to risk that somehow Vitor wins and they have a champ that can only fight in his home country cause he's juiced. It would be a joke. I doubt Vitor ever gets a title shot again if he keeps up the TRT.

Silva's fighting Weidman in December.  Vitor wouldn't get his shot until a year from now so Dana gave him someone he can beat.

 

Plus, Vitor would have issues in the states, since at least in NV, he won't get a TRT exemption.

Ricardo Mayorga got guillotined in under 2 minutes by former street fighter turned MMA fighter Rene Level Martinez after attempting a guillotine. Not surprisingly, it looked like Ricardo Mayorga trained at a Wingstop. He was in every shape except in shape.

pretty much Sonnen is their leading candidate for every fight at this point. he's more marketable than the other 95% of the roster combined.

 

Except for the fact that he doesn't really bring the ratings like Dana and Meltzer wish he did.

Who else does Vitor fight though? He's stuck fighting in Brazil due to his TRT. I doubt they will give him a MW title shot since they have to hide him in Brazil (god forbid he won and they have a champ that can't fight in Vegas).

 

At this point Vitor is probably better off for them as an "attraction" fighter like Wanderlei Silva... fighting at 205, 195, 185, whatever... in interesting fights, but fights without MW title implications.
