So many issues, so little time. UFC 175 has seen multiple changes to a light heavyweight fight due to that pesky Nevada State Athletic Commission and it seems that the person that was bounced from the card first is trying to work his way back into the picture. Wanderlei Silva was supposed to fight Chael Sonnen in the co-main event of the July card in Vegas. Then when he was removed, it was Sonnen vs. Vitor Belfort. Then Sonnen failed a drug test and got bounced himself. So Silva took it upon himself on Twitter to try and stoke the fire for a new fight:
Wand❌Vitor ?— Wanderlei Silva (@wandfc) June 11, 2014
Silva (35-12-1, 1 NC) was taken out of consideration for a bout when he wouldn't submit any medical paperwork and apparently refused a random test from the commission. Why he thinks he might be in a position to get back on that card remains a mystery but if it is possible, it would be interesting. The two men were supposed to rematch at UFC 147 after coaching the first season of TUF Brazil, but Belfort got hurt and Wandy lost to Rich Franklin instead. They originally met at UFC Brazil way back in 1998, where Belfort stopped him in 44 seconds.
Belfort has had NSAC issues himself, failing a drug test in February. He's due to stand in front of the commission next week to see if he can get licensed or not.
