Vitor Belfort wishes Uriah Hall a speedy recovery after UFC St. Louis cancellation

Vitor Belfort comments on the cancellation of his fight with Uriah Hall at Sunday’s UFC Fight Night 124. Not fighting at UFC Fight Night 124 on Sunday is difficult for Vitor Belfort, but he has no ill will towards his scheduled opponent, Uriah Hall.
The Brazilian legend posted on Instagram Saturday afternoon his reaction to his co-main event bout being cancelled due to Hall weight-cutting issues.
“I dedicated 2 months for this training camp,” Belfort wrote. “Stayed away from my family and who knows me knows how hard this is for me. I spent all necessary to have the best structure to achieve my goal. My team had an intense dedication even during the holidays. I did all my fight week obligations, cut the weight and made the fight weight.
“Unfortunately my opponent had a problem during his weight cut, I wish him a soon recovery. Now I just want to go back home and see my family. Thanks for all the support along this training camp. Love you all!”
The fight was scrapped at the end of the official weigh-ins Saturday morning when Hall failed to weigh in during the two-hour window given to fighters. Hall reportedly was on weight but fainted on his way to the weigh-ins.
UFC Fight Night 124, which will go on with 11 fights, takes place at Scottrade Center in St. Louis.
For Belfort, this was an important bout: leading up to UFC Fight Night 124, he said that it would be his last time stepping into the cage before hanging his gloves up.
Belfort did not say what is next for him in MMA.

Pessoal, dediquei dois meses da minha vida para esse training camp. Passei esse tempo todo longe da minha família e todos sabem como isso é difícil para mim… Contratei os melhores profissionais q pude, minha equipe se dedicou intensamente mesmo durante as festas de final de ano. Cumpri todas minhas obrigações na semana da luta, cortei peso e subi na balança com o peso q tenho q bater para lutar… Infelizmente meu oponente teve algum problema durante o corte de peso. Torço para sua breve recuperação. Agora só quero voltar para casa e ver minha família… Muito obrigado por todo apoio e carinho de todos os q me acompanham.
