Vitor Belfort Off UFC 175 Card

Vitor Belfort is out of a fight since the announcement that Chael Sonnen is retiring. Sonnen was set to face Chris Weidman for the UFC middleweight strap, but a licensing issue forced him off the card.

Wanderlei Silva gave the idea for a Sonnen vs. Belfort fight at the FC 175 card. Sonnen announced his retirement last night, leaving Vitor opponentless and reports are saying the UFC is not looking for a replacement.
