In a game of Brazilian musical chairs, Vitor Belfort is out of his UFC 139 fight with Cung Le and Wanderei Silva is in. The reasons for Belfort's withdrawal are cited as an injury, but of what manner has not yet been disclosed. The announcement came via Dana White's Twitter with a simple:
"Vitor is injured and out of San Jose fight. Now Cung Le will fight Wandy!"
Although "The Axe Murderer" has lost six of his last eight, the styles of these two fighters should prove to make an exciting bout.
