Vitor Belfort is out of UFC 147

By Josh Reese

The 1st ever Ultimate Fighter Brazil has been a huge hit in Brazil, but UFC 147 the unluckiest card ever for the UFC has another casualty associated to the number. After losing its location and 60,000 seat stadium it then lost its headlining fight between Anderson Silva and Chael Sonnen. UFC 147 has now lost its head coach Vitor Belfort due to a broken hand, and will not fight Wanderlei Silva at the end of the show. This would have been the re-match between two Brazilian greats, Belfort got the win against Silva back in 1998 in 44 seconds. The UFC is now scrambling for a new opponent to fight Silva. So the long awaited rematch between the two Brazilian super stars will have to wait a bit longer.
