  So you think Belfort's first plan of attack, all things being equal and feeling 100%... was to pull guard? The same Belfort who has thrown hands at EVERYONE HE HAS EVER FACED suddenly decided he could not throw a punch? You guys eat up hype with a giant spoon, I swear.

He'll get both (MRI)... An X-ray won't show anything to do with nerves....but it can show if his joint is dislocated.

vitor didn't want to have reconstructive surgery on shoulder and arm. jones was willing to sacrifice a limb for that w.

Jones didn't tap, Vitor did. Imagine that one.

So vitor didn't throw any punches because he had a broken hand. Shogun, Rampage and Rashad must have also had a broken hand when they fought jones

 I'm sure Vitor just didn't throw punches for some other reason. If you couldn't tell there was something off about Vitor in the very first few seconds, well you are probably one of the true believers who still thinks that Sonnen did something to Silva in their first fight. Why is it so hard for some of you to recognize when a fighter is clearly NOT performing?

Vitor may simply have neglected to tell the commmission about his hand, either due to not wanting to bother or not wanting to get suspended from training. Commissions aren't psychic.We really have no idea if Vitor's hand was really hurt, and I doubt we ever will.
