Don't be scared, homie. Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) middleweight No. 1 contender, Vitor Belfort, has reportedly turned down a fight against fellow division top contender Lyoto Machida, after "The Dragon" volunteered to replace the injured Chris Weidman and compete for the interim title.

Still, Team Belfort declined the fig read news >>
