Were you looking forward to UFC 181’s big showdown between Chris Weidman and Vitor Belfort? Well, too bad, because apparently Chris Weidman has broken his hand and the UFC has had to push UFC 181 back. How do we know this?
Vitor Belfort posted about it on Twitter.

The king of the MMA media, Ariel Helwani, has confirmed this.
Dana White just confirmed to me that Chris Weidman had to pull out of UFC 181 and the Belfort-Weidman fight has now been moved to Feb.

So there you have it, Chris Weidman vs. Vitor Belfort will happen in February. UFC announced moments ago that Robbie Lawler vs. Johny Hendricks II will take place in its stead on UFC 181. Alls well that ends well, right?
