07:59 PM ET 08.13 | Reports are surfacing that the UFC is in the early stages of working on a bout for a November UFC event. According to reports, a bout between Brazilian superstars Vitor Belfort and Lyoto Machida is being discussed for a Nov. 9 event in Goiana, Brazil. Belfort is coming off two straight wins over Michael Bisping and Luke Rockhold, while recently suffered a controversial loss to Phil Davis at UFC 163. Many of those watching the Machida vs. Davis bout, including UFC president Dana White, believed that Machida won the fight, so putting him against a top title contender is a bit of a reward. With a win over Belfort, Machida would immediately jump back to the top of the ladder.
