Vitor Belfort reacts to losing fight with Uriah Hall at the last minute!

Earlier today news broke that dangerous knockout artist Uriah Hall had failed to show up for the UFC Fight Night 124 weigh ins, which forced the promotion to cancel his co-main event scrap with Vitor Belfort.

According to a report from MMAFighting’s Ariel Helwani, Uriah Hall had apparently fainted on route to today’s official weigh ins in St. Louis and was then transported to a nearby hospital.

“Update on Uriah Hall: according to sources, he was on weight and headed to the weigh-ins this AM. That’s when he fainted. Looked scary, I’m told. Taken to the hospital. He’s feeling better and awake. Doctors are doing tests.”

Former UFC champion Vitor Belfort, who was planning on hanging up the gloves following his scrap with Hall, recently took to Instagram where he reacted to today’s scary news.

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. I dedicated 2 months for this training camp. 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 @uriahhall .Now I just want to go back home and see my family. Thanks for all the support along this training camp.Love you all!!
