Belfort Out, Marquardt In

Nor-Cal MMA has just learned that Vitor Belfort has been forced out of UFC 122 by an injury. It is still unclear what the extent of the injury is.

This announcement came just a day after we were notified that the winner of Belfort vs Yushin Okami would get a title shot. Now with Belfort out, the UFC has brought in Nate Marquardt, fresh off his win at Ultimate Fight Night 22.

Belfort has not fought since beating Rich Franklin in a catchweight bout at 195 lbs. With Belfort out and Chael Sonnen facing a suspension, one can only assume that Marquardt could get his rematch with champ, Anderson Silva. But first, Marquardt has to get through a tough opponent in Yushin Okami.
