Vitor Belfort Talks About Chris Weidmans Injury

UFC middleweight Vitor Belfort has his own opinion on UFC champ Chris Weidman’s latest injury, stating that in his mind it is nothing more than Weidman wanting to keep his belt until after Christmas.

Belfort had this to say on Weidmans injury:

“I didn’t believe in the beginning. After all, it’s his second straight title defense that had to be delayed because of an injury. I think that all titleholders who have more than one injury, the UFC should create an interim title in their divisions. Nobody would lose. Not the fans, not the fighters, not the UFC, only the injured athlete. Injuries are part of the sport, because we have to train at a high-level pace. But hurting himself twice in a row with such little time in his career? Are you kidding me? To me, he wanted to keep his belt during Christmas and that was the only way.”
