Well, technically a break is what is going to stop the main event from happening as Ultimate Fighter Brazil coach Vitor Belfort has suffered a broken hand and is out of his main event fight against Wanderlei Silva.
UFC President Dana White confirmed the news following UFC 146 on Saturday night.
UFC 147 has undergone several issues since being announced for June 23 in Brazil.

We should create a name for the "injury bug." I hate it so much that I have to just picture it as an ugly, disfigured, terrible little creature who's only purpose is to lead MMA fans into a blissful state before crushing our dreams and laughing at our tears.
Seriously... this sucks. Someone punch me.

Come on guys where is your support and faith in Wandi? Its not like Wandi has been getting knocked out by any and every body. Also he just got a win over Cung Le so that should account for something.
Lets not assume that every fight he gets in he is going to get wrecked. If I was Dana this fight would hold off until Vitor is healed. Hell let them do the Ultimate Fighter in the interim so they can heal up and both be ready later on this year.
There is no reason Dana cant substitue the main event for Belcher vs Munoz or Belcher vs Bisping. Both of those fights are more meaningful anyways.
