UFC 146 was an event to remember. Howver, the news that marked the evening had nothing to do with the riveting fights that brought the Las Vegas crowd to their feet this Saturday. UFC president Dana White broke word that the June 23 TUF Brazil-coach showdown between Vitor Belfort and Wanderlei Silva in Belo Horizonte, Brazil, has been scrapped, due to a broken hand suffered by Belfort in training.
Vitor kept mum until his boss made the announcement over Twitter before responding: “I still can’t believe what happened, bu that’s life; we have to overcome our hurdles. I’m counting on you guys. I can’t sleep, thinking about what happened. I’ve very sad, very sad, but I know I’ll be back even stronger,” he said.
White further stated that Wand will remain on the card; however, he hasn’t yet decided on an opponent. Got any suggestions for him, gentle reader?
