Video: Vitor Belfort gets wire removed from hand


Vitor Belfort came in for heavy criticism from Wanderlei Silva when he pulled out of their scheduled UFC 147 meeting.

Silva accused Belfort of ‘chickening out’ and being unprofessional for not taking care of his hands in training but both Belfort and his physician laughed that off, saying the injury was severe and of course unexpected.

The injury was in fact so severe that Belfort required surgery on it immediately and had a supporting wire placed into it. This weekend he had the wire removed - and you can watch the removal here:
