Alan Belcher woke up Friday morning and found out that his scheduled opponent, Vitor Belfort, was no longer on the docket.
Belfort accepted a match with UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones, leaving Belcher without an adversary.
It turns out that Belcher likely wasn’t going to be making the Belfort fight anyway, as he informed his Twitter followers that he has an injury.

Belcher added that he already has an opponent in mind when he is ready to return: Chris Weidman.
“I’d like (Weidman) or another top 5 on my return in November,” Belcher wrote.
