Dana White stated at Thursday’s press conference for UFC 168 at the MGM Grand Hotel that Vitor Belfort is next in line to fight for the UFC Middleweight title.

White had this to say regarding the matter during Thursdays press conference:

“Yeah, I think Vitor has earned the right to face whoever the winner is,” said UFC President Dana White. “Vitor has been out there fighting, taking on all comers. Yeah, he’s next in line; no doubt about it. Anything’s possible. I would never say no, but if they go in and it’s a decisive win like the last fight was, Vitor is next,”
