Dana White annouced today in his press conference that Vitor Belfort had been signed to come back to the UFC and that he would make his return at UFC 103 against Rich Franklin. Franklin, who was slated to re-match Dan Henderson as the main event of the card will have his hands full with Belfort. The fight will not, however be at middleweight, but ratehr at light heavyweight.
Speculation that Belfort would land in the UFC began to swirl following a statement by Dana White on SPIKE TV’s “Inside the Octagon” regarding a potential match-up between Belfort and Anderson Silva.
It also appear that Dan Henderson will not be moved into the role of the number one contender at middleweight.
Belfort is a huge addition to the UFC and the Franklin fight should entertain.
