Dana said Vitor Belfort broke his hand and is out. They are working on a new opponent for Wandy.

Cruz then Belfort, TUF is cursed. This is a huge letdown.

Belcher could make sense. Or does he already have a fight scheduled?

Could even add Lesnar and Tito to that list.

If I was a fighter, don't know if I'd agree to coach it now. Especially TUF Live now as part of your own training has to kinda be done in Vegas.

This is exactly who I thought about. Belcher wasn't injured in his fight with Palhares and a win over Silva could help him out with earning a title shot. I like the idea. If not Belcher, then the only other two I can think about are fighting each other, Stann and Lombard.

Worst ppv of all time may just get even worser now.

I would think belcher as well. No one else.

Belcher is the first to come to mind but remember its in Brazil to have a Brazilian win. They don't want Belcher to TKO Wandy in Brazil.

True but with Wandy's current chin who can he match up with? At 185, and with that name his opponents will all be destroyers....

Any fight on UFC 148's main card would make a better main event than letting Wanderlei Silva fight somebody so he can get knocked out again.

Best guess is they move something from 148 to 147. Second best guess is they call off Franklin vs. Le and rematch Silva against Franklin. Whatever happens, this card has horrid value and the best fights are going to be the ones from TUF Brazil.

Chris Weidman or even Brian Stann would be cool if they weren't already fighting. I've always full-heartedly had faith and love for my Wandy. After the refreshed tko win over Le I was really rooting louder for wandy to take on Belfort. With only a couple weeks to adjust to a new opponent I hope Wandy can get another win. I'd like for them to scrap the Bisping fight and let Wandy get another chance to try and KO him.

UFC 147 is just a disaster lol. I'm not too bummed, just won't spend my money on it. I could see this getting some of the worst ratings ever! Good luck with a new headliner Dana

I think take Bisping out of his Boetsch fight and making Wandy Bisping 2. I'd pay to see that

Well, for the time being (no opponent set) Wandy has an actual chance of winning. That is, unless the news of his new opponent KO's him.

I'd like to see Jorge Santiago get a call...

This sucks! What horrible news!
So does this mean Wandei will never get to redeem himself against Vitor? Wanderlei has maybe another year left in him IMO, and I hope he gets his rematch.
What crappy news following, one of the best UFC events of all time!!!!

Happens when you repeatedly hit someone in the back of the head, over and over, etc. - - right, Vitor?!!??

Wanderlei must of had an angle on his shoulder because Vitor was going to murder the axe murderer.

Exactly...I'm glad one of them got hurt cuz the fight should've never been made...it would've been the last nail in the coffin for Wandy's chin.

Times a wasting. Annouce the fight already

My money is on belcher. He would take it.

Other guess would be Paul Harris or have stann or lombard take the fight. They could still fight in Aug
