Brazillian MMA news site grevevirilhainadvertida.com.br comes to us with a rather surprising tale from one of supposedly injured Middleweight contender Vitor Belfort's training partners. Per the uncited source:
He's full of shit, man. He's an idiot. He read Dana [White]'s text wrong and thought he was fighting Ausserio Silva at a catchweight or something. He was bulking up to fight him instead of cutting to make 185, and then some kid showed him a post on sherdog saying Anderson was gonna murder him. He didn't believe it, even after Cage Potato and Bloody Elbow said the same thing. So he texted Dana and Dana replied, "lol no u r fitin Andrson u fukin moron <3 <3 ilu wut u wearin." And Vitor, no joke, shit his fucking pants.
He spent a week training nonstop, pausing only to cry, absolutely fucking terrified. When his life insurance company called to inform him that his policy did not cover Acts of Anderson, he realized that he couldn't take this fight, that Anderson would punch a hole through his face and then Ed Soares would have sex with that hole. So he made up some bullshit about a shoulder.
Disconcerting news indeed. More after the jump.Attempts to contact UFC CEO Dana White and Belfort himself were both unsuccessful, with White's text of "do u want 2 b a fukin bloger" being the more helpful reply, and Belfort simply sobbing uncontrollably.
UPDATE: grevevirilhainadvertida.com.br is no longer online, the site was taken down due to threats of lawsuits from both Belfort and the UFC, according to site Founder and Editor in Chief James Tysseling. According to Tysseling:
This is a cowardly assault on the truth. Vitor and the Fertittas both know this is true, and that I totally didn't make this story up while being bored at 3 AM last week. Pricks.
