The highly anticipated middleweight title fight between champ Chris Weidman and Vitor Belfort has been called off -- for the third time. Weidman suffered a rib injury during training, and Belfort has been pulled from the card.  The New Yorker will be looking to get back into the Octagon in April or May. MMAjunkie.com reported on Friday evening, and it was confirmed by UFC officials later on. UFC women's bantamweight champ Ronda Rousey was set to take on Cat Zingano in the co-headliner, but their five-round bout has been promoted to the main event of the evening. A women's bantamweight fight between Raquel Pennington and newcomer Holly Holm has been made the co-main event. UFC 184 takes place live from the Staples Center in Los Angeles on Feb. 28.
