With Weidman being announced as the victor via TKO, UFC President Dana White had already confirmed that the next challenger for the 185-pound belt would be MMA legend, and surging middleweight, Vitor Belfort.
At the post-fight press conference following UFC 168, Belfort spoke with select media, and National MMA Examiner Ryan McKinnell was on hand to document the action.
In this clip, briefly hear the 36-year-old legend's take on the tragic outcome of UFC 168's main event, his thoughts on his place in the sport and what he plans to do with Chris Weidman now that they will officially be meeting sometime in the near future (no date has been announced).
