Dana White has confirmed to yahoo.com that Vitor Belfort has withdrawn from the Middleweight title fight at UFC 112 in Abu Dhabi. Belfort has sustained a shoulder injury and will be unable to fight Anderson Silva.
Recently-declared number one contender Chael Sonnen may not be available unless he agrees to a short training camp. He received a large cut compliments of a Nate Marquardt elbow and is suspended for 30 days by the Nevada State Athletic Commission.
UFC 112 will still feature a Lightweight title bout between BJ Benn and challenger Frankie Edgar. Matt Hughes will face Renzo Gracie on the card as well.
