UFC 113 Preview: Lyoto Machida Will Defend His Title Again

White: If Silva beats Sonnen and Belfort, he’ll need to vacate title to compete at 205

MONTREAL – With any fighter in any division, looking beyond that competitor’s next
matchup is never a safe thing to do.

That’s true even with the seemingly unbeatable UFC middleweight champion
Anderson Silva, who faces top contender Chael
Sonnen at UFC 117 in August.

Silva’s toughest test in recent memory, he does have an idea of where a
win would take “The Spider.”
