  • Vitor Belfort out of Silva match due to shoulder problem

    well that certainly sucks

    I would assume Chael will not be ready to go but I would assume a light heavyweight fighter is going to take this fight. I am thinking Thiago Silva or someone will step up. There is no way Anderson is not at the Abu Dhabi show



    The Ultimate Fighting Championship’s plans for a spectacular debut in the Middle East took a hit on Thursday when an injured shoulder forced Vitor Belfort to withdraw from his middleweight title fight with champion Anderson Silva at UFC 112 on April 10 in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.

    UFC president Dana White confirmed the news in a text message to Yahoo! Sports on Thursday. White said Silva would remain on the card, but did not say who he would fight or whether it would be a championship fight.

    The Brazilian website, Tatame first reported the news. It quoted Jayme Sandall, one of Belfort’s coaches, as saying “He was training but not using the arm for a long time because of the injury.”

    White was in a meeting Thursday afternoon and could not be reached for comment or additional details.

    A lightweight championship fight between B.J. Penn and top contender Frankie Edgar is still on the card.

      Couture vs Silva is one of the onlu matchups out there at 205, either that or Thiago

        Akiyama could get the call as well. I would bet on Couture though

          i doubt Akiyama, because it would be a title shot if it was him and he doesnt deserve one, with a questionable win over Belcher

            I see you guys have already forgot that Chael Sonnen was in line to face the winner of Silva/Vitor. His medical suspension ends March 24th, so he could still fight.

                Damnit. If Nate would have won he certainly would have gotten the title shot, then Belfort would get the winner.

                  Sonnen got the nasty cut and took a lot of damage in that fight. While he could be ready to go, i am doubting he takes it on short notice like that.

                  Couture took no damage at all and is the exact big name that the Silva camp wants to fight. Ed Soares already didn't believe Sonnen was a viable contender yet. Wouldn't shock me to see Sonnen vs Vitor booked for the shot at Anderson after he fights Couture or whomever

                      Sonnen's face has cleared up pretty nicely already actually

                      I dont think Hendo is laughing his ass off. If he wouldnt of signed with SF, he would of been the guy to step in for the title shot against Anderson. Oh, the irony.

                        I was really looking forward to this fight. Hopefully they can get a good replacement for Anderson.

                          Dana's saying that it will be a MW title defense, so my guess is it will be Sonnen....

                          and i guess there are rumors of Couture vs Franklin at 115 so thats pretty much ruled out.

                          if Anderson gets by Sonnen(?) then hopefully Vitor will be ready by July or August and if Anderson gets by him he can permanently move to LHW

                            Vitor fucked a great card up and should now be forced to fight chris Leben on a TUF finale.

                            Fuck you Vitor

                              ^ Well Anderson pulled out of the 109 slot the first time. So it's 1-1.
