Middleweight top contenders Vitor Belfort (19-8 MMA, 8-4 UFC) and Yushin Okami (25-5 MMA, 9-2 UFC) are going toe-to-toe in Germany in November, as some reports say.

UFC 122 will possibly feature the two fighters at Konig Pilsener Arena in Oberhausen, Germany. Spike TV, UFC’s long-time network partner, will air the event via same-day delay.

UFC middleweight first timer Belfort has been the good next bet for a title shot, as long as his camp is concerned. A year has passed since his first UFC appearance where a first-round knockout of opponent Rich Franklin was rendered. His five-time winning streak makes him one viable contender after the rematch between current champ Anderson Silva and Chael Sonnen takes place at the end of the year or early 2011.

Meanwhile, even Dana White himself determined Okami as a likely contender at a 185-pound title fight. Okami seems to have the story of an underdog as he has struggled to get into the action in aired main card brawls before this.
