Vitor Belfort Wishes Uriah Hall Quick Recovery Following Difficult Weight Cut, Canceled Bout

By Tristen Critchfield Jan 13, 2018


Vitor Belfort was supposed to make his final walk to the Octagon at UFC Fight Night 124 on Sunday, but it wasn’t meant to be.

The Brazilian’s middleweight clash with Uriah Hall was scrapped after Hall was unable to weigh in on Saturday. According to MMAFighting.com’s Ariel Helwani, Hall fainted on his way to weigh-ins and was taken to a hospital.

Even though he lost a fight one day before it was scheduled to take place, Belfort took the situation in stride and wished his proposed opponent a speedy recovery. It is currently unclear if the UFC will attempt to rebook Belfort vs. Hall.

I dedicated [two] months for this training camp. Stayed away from my family and who knows me knows how hard this is for me,” Belfort wrote on Instagram. “I spent all necessary to have the best structure to achieve my goal. My team had an intense dedication even during the holidays. I did all my fight week obligations, cut the weight and made the fight weight. Unfortunately my opponent had a problem during his weight cut. I wish him a [quick] recovery @uriahhall . Now I just want to go back home and see my family. Thanks for all the support along this training camp. Love you all!!”

Pessoal, dediquei dois meses da minha vida para esse training camp. Passei esse tempo todo longe da minha família e todos sabem como isso é difícil para mim... Contratei os melhores profissionais q pude, minha equipe se dedicou intensamente mesmo durante as festas de final de ano. Cumpri todas minhas obrigações na semana da luta, cortei peso e subi na balança com o peso q tenho q bater para lutar... Infelizmente meu oponente teve algum problema durante o corte de peso. Torço para sua breve recuperação. Agora só quero voltar para casa e ver minha família... Muito obrigado por todo apoio e carinho de todos os q me acompanham.
