Report: Belfort fought Jones with a broken hand

source: mmamania.com
 

As it turns out, Ron Kruck got the word from the man himself and a training camp injury may be to blame.

Vitor Belfort just told me that he fought with a broken hand suffered in training. As tough as they come.

Despite this disadvantage, Belfort very nearly submitted Jones with an armbar in the first round, locking it in so deep that "Bones" complained his arm was numb during the post-fight interview. In fact, it's probably not out of line to say, Belfort put up a better fight than any challenger for the title before him.

Chael doesn't deserve any title shot at any weight and wouldn't have lasted 3 rounds nor would he have come close to submitting JBJ if past performances mean anything.

Vitor did not break his hand. Rashad was screaming at Vitor to throw his left hand.

VTFU when I get to a computer. Great fucking insight. Vitor will never win with most fans.

Just from the videos online it looked like Vitor was the only fighter who threw absolutely no strikes during the open workouts. Perhaps trying to not aggravate and injury?

But...it *did* come up ahead of time? We already went over this. There were tons of rumors a month ago about Vitor re-breaking the hand that caused him to pull out of the Wanderlei fight. You think that's a complete coincidence??

There are ways around the doctors apparently. Vitor isn't the first guy to fight with injuries that would put you on the disabled list in most sports.
