    One of the most expected fights of 2010 will not happen anymore. The title fight between Anderson Silva and Vitor Belfort, set to UFC 112 main event, will possibly be cancelled, as TATAME.com learned from close sources that the challenger is injured and won’t be able to recover in time.



    Jayme Sandall, Karate trained of the challenger, revealed to TATAME.com that Belfort had a shoulder injury, but he doesn’t know how bad it is. “He was training but not using the arm for a long time because of the injury, he said he’d stop for a while. He said he’d have it scanned to know how bad it is, but I don’t talk with him for 15 days and I don’t know about the results”, said.



    TATAME.com tried to reach Belfort and his manager, Fabiano Farah, but had no success. We called Anderson Silva, who claimed he had no information about the injured. “Nobody told me anything about it. I’m training normally to this fight”, the champion said.



    In case this news confirms, it’ll be the second time that the UFC is forced to postpone the battle, which was set to the UFC 108 event in January 2, but Silva had to cancel the fight due to an elbow surgery. Stay tuned on TATAME.com or more news.

    Maybe they will let Sonnen lay on top of Anderson for 5 rounds to win the belt in the mean time [dunno]

    I have little doubt that will be the case.

    Not necessarily the outcome though. Having Chael on top of you isn't exactly the death sentance it is when a guy like GSP is doing it.

    Oh, and it's been confirmed.

    Had little doubt when I saw Tatame say it though.
