Vitor Belfort Complaining That His Fight With Weidman Was Postponed

UFC Middleweight title contender Vitor Belfort isn’t too pleased about his championship match with Chris Weidman being postponed because of the champs hand injury, and during a interview he didn’t hold back his feelings. Heres what he had to say:

“Dana White confirmed that my opponent [Weidman] will have to wear a cast for four weeks, and will be cleared (to train) in six, I have to respect the decision that was made. Unfortunately, injuries are part of the routine of professional athletes, In this type of situation, everybody loses – the fans, who want to see an incredible fight, the other athlete, who trains hard for a fight, the promoters and sponsors, who want to make it all happen. The belt must be available to be conquered by the best fighter. I’m in favor of creating an interim title for cases like this, when the champion gets injured more than once, especially in back-to-back injuries, preventing title fights to happen.”
