The UFC could give him a replacement...
A new report suggests that despite the fact that Chael Sonnen is currently out of UFC 175, opponent Vitor Belfort could still be on the card. As previously reported, Sonnen failed a random drug test and a source told MMAjunkie that even if Sonnen's appeal fails, UFC officials may give Belfort a replacement opponent.
Of course, Belfort himself still needs to be cleared to fight on the show; he is scheduled for a hearing on June 17th for his license application to be heard. Belfort stepped in for Wanderlei Silva, who had licensing issues after he reportedly fled from a random drug test.
