Vitor Belfort is booked to face Wanderlei Silva during the summer of 2012. He also fights in two weeks at UFC 142 in Rio de Janeiro. The fight must be a walkover, right? Not according to the oddsmakers.

Johnson, who is moving up 15 pounds to middleweight, is a small underdog at +110.

Don't be surprised when Johnson stands toe-to-toe with Belfort. He'll appear to be the bigger man.

Check out the extended preview for UFC 142 and you'll see Johnson looks massive as he preps for his cut to 185 pounds (5:17 mark).
