UFC Middleweight and former Pride champion Wanderlei Silva is anything but happy with Vitor Belfort after hearing that an injured hand has forced Belfort out of their scheduled UFC 147 headliner. Silva took to his twitter account to vent (translation via Tatame.com):

"(Fighting me) with one hand (laughs)? We are professionals. It's a great irresponsibility not to be careful on training, a great disrespect towards the fans. I'm really sad. I'm ready to knock you out, you have nowhere to run. This fight is happening. I guess you got scared of me. Nobody trains so hard that breaks his hand. We use the best equipments, gloves, bandages."

Now I can say this without any regret..

I want Belfort to knock Wandy's lights out.

I think Wanderlei is being disrespectful but I think its because he wanted a chance to redeem that loss so bad.

He should be praising Vitors hand! Right now thats the only reason he won't wake up looking at the lights wondering whats happened again.

As much as i loved the Wanderlei from PRIDE, he is loooooong gone.

In 2012, this fight is a bigger mismatch than Rory Macdonald versus Che Mills imo.

Easy to call someone out who's injured. Wand better have chin to outlast Bisping again. Bisping is coming for the rematch.

Oh I've realized this.

Every time he has a fight with a big name I totally ignore what he looked like in the previous fight and just give him the benefit of the doubt.

Ive been wrong before about this. One more time won't hurt

Eat Sh*t Wanderlily, your only squaking because you know you dodged a bullet. Did he even see the pic of Vitor's hand? That thing was fucked up

Wasn't expecting this from Wandy. Usually a nice guy.

What can Vitor do, not like he pulled out for no reason, his hand was broken.

Should they make him fight with a broken hand? Then Cruz fight with a torn ACL?

Funny Wanderlei is talking shit because I would pick Vitor over Wandy with one hand.

Wandy is usually a cool guy so I won't hold this against him.

He's got bad blood with Vitor.

Even good people do and say bad things.

From what I hear Belfort has been respectful toward Silva and his team but Silva on the other has been acting like a dick.

I wanted to say something in the thread regarding Vitor pulling out of the fight but I just didn't feel motivated enough.

I'm motivated now though..

Vitor's broken hand saved you an ass whoppin' at least for now, Wanderlei.

Vitor was being very cool but I could see how Silva would clash w/him personality wise. I would say it's probably kind of one sided though. Vitor seems like he has nothing but respect for Silva. I was watching TUF Brazil online but until like the 4th episode and then it seemed to vanish. I haven't been able to find it on the UFC site since then. I was enjoying it.

If I was Wanderlei, I'd be tracking down that Dr. that fixed his nose but made his face look how it does

I was thinking the same thing about Wandy...but no free pass for me. Dumb thing to say.

I'm all for Wandy getting a pass for saying these things, you have to take in the fact that he was hit in the head, many of times, sometimes you say things without thinking very much.
