Vitor Belfort (24-10 MMA, 13-6 UFC) will not compete at UFC 175 next month, company officials tell MMAjunkie.

Not surprised. Was telling ufc fight club forum all month the fight won't happen.
Another July. Another Vegas big card
Another ufc fucking over the fans who spend a Shit load of money on the most expensive ticket of the year.

This is annually now. Not surprised.
Reason why I bought cheap seats for this.

The lame ass fake TUF fight between Wandy and Chael sure seems pointless and stupid now that the fight is dead in every way possible.

That sucks. I was kinda hoping they might be able to get Gegard to fill in or something on short notice. He didn't really take any damage against Munoz and I don't remember reading anything about any medical suspensions for him. I thought this would have been a good fight so long as fighting at 205 wouldn't have been an issue for Gegard so soon after a fight at 185.

If it weren't for his scheduled fight with Lil Nog I'd say send in Rumble! The only problem with that is I believe they're teammates now.

Now that Sonnen is retired, I'm hoping they match Belfort and Wanderlei up somewhere down the road.
