Belfort Replaces Hendo At Ufc 103

    Fri, 2009-07-31 10:56 — chernobyl kid

    Vitor Belfort is the latest fighter displaced by Affliction to migrate to the UFC.

    UFC president Dana White announced he had signed the former UFC champion Friday on a conference call with reporters, We just signed Vitor Belfort. Vitor Belfort is fighting Rich Franklin at UFC 103... It is now Rich Franklin versus Vitor Belfort headlining Dallas.

    The bout will be contested at 205 pounds said White, although Belforts most recent fights have been in the middleweight division.

    The announcement squashed rumors Belfort had booked a fight in Brazil in September.

    Belfort was one of two fighters tapped to replace Josh Barnett at Affliction Trilogy before the show was cancelled last Friday. Affliction folded their fight promotion operations shortly after.

    The announcement of Belfort signing on with the UFC was a bit of a surprise, which added to the expected announcement that Tito Ortiz had also re-signed with the promotion.
