Wanderlei Silva Out; Vitor Belfort vs. Chael Sonnen at UFC 175
Posted by Dan Plunkett on 05.28.2014



Globo.com reports that Wanderlei Silva failed to attend required medical tests and is out of UFC 175 on July 5. Vitor Belfort will take his place and fight Chael Sonnen on the card.

Sonnen and Silva's rivalry played out on The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil 3 and drew excellent ratings in Brazil. The match was initially scheduled for last weekend's UFC 173, then pushed back to May 31 in Brazil, and then to UFC 175 due to an injury Silva sustained during a scuffle with Sonnen.

The report also notes UFC may look to terminate Silva's contract.

Belfort was to face Chris Weidman in a title match at UFC 173, but was pulled from the match when the Nevada Athletic Commission banned testosterone replacement therapy. Weidman then suffered an injury and now headlines UFC 175 against Lyoto Machida.

UFC 175 takes place on July 5 from the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas and will be broadcast live on pay-per-view. Check out the current card below:

  • Champ Chris Weidman vs. Lyoto Machida for middleweight title
  • Champ Ronda Rousey vs. Alexis Davis for women's bantamweight title
  • Vitor Belfort vs. Chael Sonnen
  • Alex Caceres vs. Urijah Faber
  • Matt Mitrione vs. Stefan Struve
  • Uriah Hall vs. Thiago "Marreta" Santos
  • Chris Camozzi vs. Bruno Santos
  • Guilherme Vasconcelos vs. Luke Zachrich
  • Ildemar Alcantara vs. Santiago Ponzinibbio
