Resume wise no doubt, but I think the reason an easier case could be made for the Chael rematch was Chael dominated him for 4+ rounds, so you felt like he demonstrated that he had a very realistic chance of beating Anderson. Vitor didn't. And it wasn't like Cain/JDS where Cain had a very clear path to victory but the fight didn't last long enough for us to see if that path would work. Vitor's just gonna stand with Anderson again. Now granted I would probably agree that Vitor would be Anderson's toughest test at 185 aside from Weidman, but if Lombard beats Okami like he did Palhares I think a compelling case could be made for him as well.
