UFC heads to Brazil tonight for UFC on FX 7. Headlining the card is a terrific middleweight bout between Michael Bisping and Vitor Belfort. Both of these fighters are some of the best in the division, and they will be fighting to keep their legacy alive. For Bisping, he has the chance to capture a UFC middleweight title shot if he is victorious.
He believes he has the skills to compete with Anderson Silva, and he faces a stern test in Belfort. Belfort is coming into this fight off a loss to Jon Jones, but he actually looked pretty good considering he was fighting the best fighter in MMA right now. He is fighting to remain relevant in the UFC, and he looked to be in sensational shape at the weigh-ins yesterday.
Also on the card, C.B. Dolloway will look to regain some momentum when he takes on Daniel Sarafian. This fight will move the winner up the middleweight ladder, and the loser takes a serious set back in their career and may be given their walking papers.
