Wanderlei Silva vs. Chael Sonnen not happening, Sonnen vs. Vitor for UFC 175



MMA Fighting and Combate in Brazil are both reporting that Wanderlei Silva didn't show up at a meeting before the Nevada State Athletic Commission and thus won't be licensed to face Chael Sonnen on 7/5 in Las Vegas.

Combate reported that Vitor Belfort will step in to face Sonnen, which is notable because of questions regarding a drug test he had taken in Nevada earlier this year.
