The violent altercation between UFC Middleweight Champion Anderson Silva and Vitor Belfort at the UFC 126 weigh-ins is front page news in Brazil, where the bizarre incident, which started out as a joke, is the biggest story of the weekend.

"Silva was pissed that Belfort said he wears masks to cover his true persona in the cage," our man on the scene told us, "so Silva brought along a mask from a Vegas show, and Belfort was furious. This was like a pro wrestling angle, but it was 100 percent real!"
