Vitor Belfort posts a response to fight cancellation via Instagram

Vitor Belfort is obviously disappointed but he took the high road here.

We reported earlier that Uriah Hall had a medical issue this morning and was not able to weigh in for his fight with Vitor Belfort, thus canceling the contest. As you might expect, Vitor Belfort had thoughts on the situation and posted them via his Instagram account. The best part of this is the fact he cuts weight with his dog.

This was set to be Vitor’s retirement fight and now that’s going to have to wait. I’d love to see Vitor Belfort meet  Michael Bisping in a rematch in London as both fighters retirement fights. I think that would be pretty amazing.

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. I dedicated 2 months for this training camp. Stayed away from my family and who knows me knows how hard this is for me. 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 soon 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!!
