UFC 139: Wanderlei Silva vs Cung Le Booked After Vitor Belfort Withdraws With Injury

It looks like Vitor Blefort won’t be making that trip to San Jose to fight Cung Le at UFC 139 after all. The veteran striker had to bow out of his upcoming fight due to an injury. But don’t worry, just as dangerous slugger Wanderlei “The Axe Murderer” Silva has the UFC’s back and will step in for Belfort.

Dana tweets:

Vitor is injured and out of San Jose fight. Now Cung Le will fight Wandy!

Belfort tweets:

I am out of november card, I have to take care of a injury. Nothing major but the good news that the doctor says I will be ready for dec

    • Wandi is going to get taken apart by a guy who is a more technical striker than him. I guess its a good intro from Cung Le but I don't think Wandi should have taken a fight with such a great striker. It kind of negates his brawling strengths.
