Vitor Belfort vs Chris Weidman/ Anderson Silva winner

In his latest UFC stint, Vitor Belfort is really living up to his nickname 'The Phenom.' He's finally got himself into a proper training camp with the Blackzillians and has looked unstoppable. His win on Saturday night over Dan Henderson at UFC Fight Night 32 was his third W on the bounce via head kick, becoming the first man to beat Hendo via strikes.

Although the fight was at Light Heavyweight, both men do compete at Middleweight and just decided not to cut weight. He's completely taken out everyone in his path at Middleweight, except Anderson Silva.

Belfort was on the receiving end of a front kick KO by Anderson Silva. He would love to fight Silva for the title, however he has to avenge his loss to Chris Weidman first.

Dan Henderson vs Maurico 'Shogun' Rua

Regardless of how Shogun fares against James Te-Huna, this fight has to happen. Their first meeting at UFC 139 was one of the best fights in UFC history. It was completely back and forth with Henderson just getting the nod.

Hendo is now 43. With three straight losses, it's very unlikely he's getting a title shot again in his career. A big fight and big pay cheque for a repeat of their infamous fight is what Hendo needs to go for.

Tim Kennedy vs Michael Bisping

Kennedy's lacklustre UFC debut was forgotten once he KO'd Rafael Natal at UFC N 31. 

He's been promised a big name opponent, and seems to have managed to get himself one. Kennedy has gone into a war of words with Bisping and it looks all but certain the fight will be made.

Alexis Davis vs Cat Zigano

Davis put in her best performance to date with her win over Liz Carmouche. She looked superb and really made a statement at UFC FN 31 to her division.

Zigano should have been fighting for the title if not for injury. A warm up fight before she meets the winner of Rousey vs Tate is the most sensible thing for her.

Rafael Cavalcante vs Ryan Bader/Anthony Perosh winner

Calvancante put his poor UFC debut behind him as he stormed through Igor Pokrajac at FN 32. His knees in the Mauy Thai clinch really displayed what he can do at 205lbs. However it's not reality if he meets a top fighter just yet. 

Bader or Perosh make a nice stepping stone for Feijao if could beat either opponent.

Brandon Thatch vs Thiago Alves

Thatch has come into the UFC and walked through his two opponents, finishing both of them in the first round. His aggressive style and striking is excellent. It's time for a step up in class for the man fighting out of Grudge Training Centre.

Alves has been inconsistent lately - he was winning his most recent fight with Martin Kampmann before getting caught in a guillotine choke late on.

A win for Thatch makes a statement to the rest of the Welterweight division, that he is a serious contender at the 170lbs title. 

A win for 'Pitbull' earns him the respect he needs and a bigger named opponent next time out.
