Great, Now Vitor Belfort Is Out of UFC 112 With an Injury


(8:03 am: Vitor learns about World of Warcraft. 12:16 pm: Vitor calls in sick to training, orders a pizza. 5:37 pm: Vitor suddenly declares himself incapable of fighting Anderson Silva at UFC 112.)

Get your disappointed faces on, Potato Nation.  Vitor Belfort won’t be challenging Anderson Silva for the UFC middleweight strap in Abu Dhabi this April, after all.  Brazilian website Tatame broke the news today, which was later confirmed, that Belfort is out of the fight with a shoulder injury.  This is the second time the bout has been put off, and now we’re starting to wonder whether we’ll ever see it happen or whether the MMA gods have deemed it too potentially awesome to take place on an earthly realm.

The immediate question for the UFC is, what now?  They could postpone it yet again, relying instead on the novelty of the event to draw a crowd in the Middle East, or they could get crazy and try to shuffle newly-crowned contender Chael Sonnen into the challenger spot.  It seems unlikely that he’d be able to make the April 10 date considering all the damage he suffered in the win over Nate Marquardt, however.  Physical exhaustion aside, the guy got his forehead sliced in half, which means he’s going to need time to heal before he can even resume full-contact sparring.  Not only would the UFC be asking him to forego a full training camp, they’d be asking him to fight the world’s best 185-pounder with just two months rest after the toughest fight of his career.

Besides, Sonnen seems to have other things on his mind just now…



Yep, that’s Sonnen getting the old “fair and balanced” treatment from the Fox News morning show “Fox & Friends." Through the wizardry of make-up, they even managed to make him look like a human being who didn’t just go through three rounds of hell a few days ago, and that’s impressive. Attempts to keep the electorate from finding out about his career as an "Ultimate Fighting Champion" are now futile, but Sonnen’s stated political goals still trend toward the vague end of the spectrum. He wants more jobs in the economically depressed screwed state of Oregon, less government spending, and more focus on schools, where extracurriculars are being cut, presumably because the state has no money and opposing any and all government spending is the cause célèbre of the moment.

Fun things to note: at around the 2:25 mark, the three hosts begin to get visibly impatient with Sonnen’s spiel, then they close with a plug for FoxFightingGame.com, which is not actually a website.

    Just to keep Silva fighting, give Nate the shot. He suffered no real damage and the ufc has done that before.

    I thought chael actually did pretty good there except for where he said he wanted to reduce government spending and also spend more on schools (unless oregon somehow doesn't use government money to finance education). It's the fox and friends newsdouches who were embarrassing to watch. All they wanted to talk about was how he fights cages for a living. By the way, I think that the website black haired guy who's not brown haired guy who's not Steve Doocey was trying to say was foxnews.com/fightgame

    It'll either be a 205 fight with Couture or Silva will come off the card I'd say. Think Dana and co. have learned the lesson after the Leites fight either give him an opponent he is motivated for or he'll just interpretive dance his way through the fight for the hell of it.

    I posted this on another thread, but I thought I should say it. On the thread to which it pertains. The only logical choice to fight Anderson at this point is rosimar palhares. He's the effin man.

    @iDestroy You have been on that guys nuts for quite a while, you are nothing if not persistent. Keep it up sir. And fuck Oregon, nothing but a bunch of dirty fucking hippies.

    @skeletor I just don't see how anyone can not love the guy. Wow, first Boston, now the entire state of Oregon. I hope Texas hasn't done anything to offend you. I'd hate to incur the wrath of skeletor.

    skeletor, have you been to Oregon? I grew up in TN, have lived in TX, spent considerable time in KY, AL, FL, GA rural PA, and driven through or visited much of the country and the rednecks in OR, 50% of the population at least, could give anyone a run for their money in the redneck championships of the world(TM). Outside of Eugene and Portland, OR is totally absent hippies and saturated with super-conservative meth-sucking rednecks with guns.

    I've had it out with portlandmma before, so this is nothing new. Texas is alright I've got no beef with ya'all down there.

    Thu, 02/11/10 - 04:34


    Give him Chael, fuck it he'll be down. Its got a good story and his face looks fine. April is a bit away. He can still get a good 4 week training camp in after he heals. And Im sure he's still in good shape.

    @Clayton I'm from Missouri the county over from mine was featured in a A&E documentary entitled "Meth: A county in crisis". I'm not condoning meth use, but I'm sure Oregon is second rate in that also.

    As much as I'd like to see Chael grind a 5rd decision on Anderson, I think Silva/Soares would weasel out of it. I bet they finagle their way into something terrible like Cote....Silva-Cote II! YAY!

    Chael has said before that he doesnt do the training camp thing. He says he goes in everyday and has a set of things that he continually works on. So as far as not getting a full camp in, that should be fine because in his words he doesnt need that and that all fighters that say they are "full time fighters" are liars. This is a perfect time for Chael to back up what he has been spewing about for months now. There is plenty of time for that gash heal. Now he can have Anderson for sure because he said he wanted the "easier matchup"......I expect Chael to start doing a little backpeddling pretty soon..

    This seriously Blows Dognuts, this had the potential to be one of the best fights of the year..... i can see some possiblities though, you got chael to offer the bought, if he dont want it so early after the marquart fight, then you could offer it to marquart, (would end just like the first one), or you could give it to cotoure, and if he didnt want it cuase so early either, ide say make anderson take on ...well..... ide love to see rich franklin get his nose broken in 5 places again.... that would be cool i guess..... or you could get 8 abu dahbi goat fuckers to fight him all at once..now that would be cool!!!! yea... i said it.... that would be cool

  44. DazedNConfused Says:

    Thu, 02/11/10 - 07:59


    Couture would actually die I think. His oldman Greco Roman style (nothing against Greco just the oldman version) would result in a classic Knee to the jaw. I want CHAEL! Back up all that shit talk.
  45. iDestroy Says:

    @Rex You are right to say that Kansas sucks, but what did the great Republic of Texas ever do to you? That's weird that you love Arizona and what not as its one of the few places I hate(Oklahoma and like I said before Kansas). But I've only been to the northeast corner with all the Navajos, so I guess I should give the rest of the state the benefit of the doubt. ............... Now back on topic. Why the hell does everybody keep coming up with more opponents for the spider when I've already given you all the only logical one? Who among you thinks AS has any skills that would give Palhares any trouble?
  46. failingev0lution Says:

    Thu, 02/11/10 - 08:21


    easy answer! replace the bout with that "superfight" you always whisper about but dare not speak its name. scrap Hardy vs GSP from UFC 111 - trust me, no one is really going to miss that fight. besides, 111 already has the interim heavy title fight, so it will still sell fine. it's perfect timing! UFC's two best PfP fighters...*crosses fingers*
  47. lifemark Says:

    Thu, 02/11/10 - 08:42


    Here's Chale's in: Double down. "My cuts will be healed and I guarantee Anderson won't get a stoppage. If he does, he gets my purse. It will be fight of the night anyhow and I will have that cash. All I need is a chance. Ask Nate if I deserve one." I think that'd get him over.
  48. Dr Garbo Says:

  51. ghostboner Says:

    Thu, 02/11/10 - 10:45


    Best suggestions so far are Nate Diaz coming up to 185 cause we know he ain't scared, and Chad OchoCinco. I would rather just see Anderson move up to 205. Fight Ryan Bader. Or go heavyweight and fight Pat Barry. Rashad vs Anderson would be interesting and sell some ppv. Also if Rashard won it could help sell a Lyoto rematch. Throw him in with Thiago Silva and confuse the hell out of everyone. I would like to see this Andre Gustafson kid fight him. At 6'5" we would see how Anderson does on the other end of a reach advantage. Of course the UFC would not risk putting Anderson in there with a no name. @iDestroy - I agree Rousimar is pretty sweet but I see that turning into Silva vs Leites II rather quickly.

    Anderson Spider SIlva should just fight whoever the fuck Dana tells him to....hey....hold on a sec.......do you..see what ....i see?? A nderson S pider S ilva........A.S.S. ...????? Henceforth i decree from this dayeth forward Anderson Spider Silva..be only reffered to as A.S.S..... (cue catholic Holy chapel Noises).......... So it is said so it shall be done......(again with the Chapel noise) now seeing as how A.S.S. has no opponent, either A) Make him fight couture... ... (i really think that would be just the fight to make randy train his ass off) , and we see a rejuvenation of the couture of 6 years ago, randy wins , and then FINALLY retires gracefully. then dana strips him of the belt , and then makes a title fight for the vacant title vs. vitor and A.S.S. , that would be the perfect fight .. or... B (which is most likely to happen) And A.S.S. doesnt fight at all in Camel Pig Fuck Land and waits till UFC (insert Number here to take on Vitor or whoever is healthy enough to fight him....) most likely some undeserving shit who we all know cant hang with him...or.. c) anderson finally quit being a queer and fights his friend Lyoto Machida (never happen but its ok to wish), as off which lyoto will not be the champ seeing as how the guy who should be champ who already beat him is going to fuck him up in the rematch...ok im going to bed you bitches 8)

    They will not get Anderson to fight Anyone else! This fight match up is toooooooooooooooooooooo GOOD! i say they will pull him (Anderson) off the card and they will clash in about june! I say they will headline the card before or just after Brocks next card! Lets just hope the two guys they put in there place are big names!

    Texans>> From what i know of Austin, it is a cool town and the exception to the rule of Texan suck. My experience with Texas is mostly San Antonio in August for basic training. Eff. That. Also, i've had to drive through the state a couple of times, and it takes like a week to get out of Texas. And seriously, like 99% of Texans are giving the rest of ya'll a bad name. That succession nonsense was funny until Faux Noise viewers started believing they could actually do it. Thanks for reminding me though--Oklahoma has the worst roads i've ever encountered in the US.

    Rex, I get where you're comin from, Texas is huge. The top of Texas is closer to Canada than it is to the southern most tip of Texas its self. And I was sure that Texas was by far the friendliest state til I went to san Antonio. I feel like Houston is the same way. Dallas, Austin, and northern Texas however are still in touch with their good ol boy roots.
