An injury has forced Vitor Belfort out of a scheduled middleweight bout against Cung Le at UFC 139 in November.
UFC President Dana White announced that the fight had been called off due to the Belfort injury but that Cung Le would still be on the card, now fighting against former Pride Middleweight Champ Wanderlei Silva.
Le will be making his UFC and fighting for the first time since the summer of 2010 while Silva last competed at UFC 132, losing to Chris Leben via TKO.
UFC 139 takes place on November 19th and takes place in San Jose, Ca.
