Silva Says Belfort Can Run But He Can't Hide

By Chris Howie

Wanderlei Silva will face Rich Franklin this weekend at UFC 147 but that wasn't the match up he was originally training for. Silva had been preparing for Vitor Belfort, a match up he had been hoping for, but a Belfort injury changed plans.

Silva isn't convinced though that Belfort was ever injured at all. He spoke to MMAJunkie.com about it:

“You need to ask him. I looked in the news, and he started training right now. He recovered so fast, didn't he? I don't know.”

Silva also still plans on fighting Belfort down the line:

“He can run, but he can't hide. Sooner or later, we're going to fight.”
