And Belfort still needs to get licensed...
Dana White spoke with Fighters Only about Chael Sonnen's bout with Vitor Belfort at UFC 175. Check out the highlights:
On a potential title shot being for Sonnen if he wins: "I'm not saying he'll get a title shot, but it will be big for him. The fight has been made at middleweight though, so, we'll see what happens."
On Sonnen implying it would be a light heavyweight fight: "As far as I know, it's ...But, maybe Lorenzo (Fertitta) talked to those two, and maybe they both wanted a fight at 205. But it doesn't really make sense for title implications at 185 if it takes place at 205."
On the fight being scratched if Belfort can't be licensed: "No, there's no plan B."
