Chris Weidman to Vitor Belfort: "You Already Had Your Shot at the Belt"

| by

Chris Weidman made a plea to the UFC to give him a shot at UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva after he dominated Mark Munoz. Now, as others - including Vitor Belfort - try to position themselves as the No. 1 contender, Weidman is firing back.

"Lova ya (Belfort) but you already had your shot at the belt and (I'm) sure u will have another in the future. (Right) now is my time though," Weidman posted on Twitter.

There appears to be a handful of contenders at 185 pounds, with Belfort, Weidman, Michael Bisping, Alan Belcher, Tim Boetsch and Brian Stann all feeling like they are worthy foes for Silva.

It appears as if the UFC is putting together a sort of tournament, with Bisping and Stann meeting in September, and rumors of Belcher-Belfort taking place in October.
