Vitor Belfort returns to the middleweight rankings after a unsuccessful bid at the UFC light heavyweight belt. He was submitted in the fourth round by champion Jon Jones in the fourth round at UFC 152. The loss snapped a two-fight win streak, which included first round stoppage victories against Yoshihiro Akiyama and Anthony Johnson.
Michael Bisping got one step closer to a title shot that has eluded for some time with a clear-cut unanimous decision over Brian Stann at UFC 152. Bisping has won five out his last six fights, with his only loss being a controversial decision loss to Chael Sonnen earlier this year in January.
