Wanderlei Silva out of fight against Sonnen, Belfort in
How long has Chael Sonnen been ranting and raving that his rival and opposing coach on TUF Brazil, Wanderlei ‘the Axe Murderer’ Silva would not show up to their fight on July 5?
Well, Sonnen must have known something the rest of the world didn’t because today Silva withdrew from the bout after failing medical exams.
Luckily for Sonnen there is another Brazilian who wants to tear his head off, and his name is Vitor Belfort.
So the UFC 175 card now looks like: Middleweight champion Chris Weidman vs. Lyoto Machida and UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey vs. Alexis Davis.
