Vitor Belfort Out of UFC 147 Main Event With Broken Hand, Wanderlei Silva Awaits New Opponent

Neither coaching pair from the current seasons of TUF are going to make it to the Octagon this summer.

The UFC 148 co-headliner between TUF Live 1 coaches Dominick Cruz and Urijah Faber was scrapped earlier this month after Cruz suffered a knee injury. And now the UFC 147 main event between TUF Brazil coaches Vitor Belfort and Wanderlei Silva is also off due to a broken hand Belfort sustained in training.

Ariel Helwani broke the news earlier tonight following UFC 146.

Dana said Vitor Belfort broke his hand and is out. They are working on a new opponent for Wandy. Vitor had surgery today. No word on how it went yet.


No word yet on who might replace Belfort.
