Vitor Belfort Says He Didnít Pull Out of UFC 173 Title Fight
Posted by Larry Csonka on 02.28.2014



- The following statement was posted on Vitor Belfort's Facebook Fan Page, and is a statement from Belfort regarding the TRT issue and him reportedly pulling out of UFC 173Ö

VITOR BELFORT HASN'T GIVEN UP THE FIGHT, WAS FORCED TO RETIRE ".

"I never gave up fighting in UFC 173 and never mentioned it. Therefore, all information posted in any mass media advertising that is not true.

What I announced was that I will be resigning "TRT" and not "giving up the fight" to continue my dream of fighting.

The UFC decided to put another opponent in my place because I didn't have time to fit the new rules of the NSAC. According to the UFC, I will face the winner of Weidman vs Lyotto within the new regulations of all the Athletic Commissions.

I'm sorry that this happened, and I appreciate the strength and understanding of all fans, sponsors, UFC and athletic commissions ".
