Really loving the fact that Vitor Belfort calls the cage a circle. Still waiting for a MMA promotion with the guts to shape their cage like a rhombus.
In case you missed it, it is 2019 and Belfort is now fighting for ONE Championship. So goes the story of a prize fighter since 1996. Belfort’s fight versus Father Time will stop next somewhere in Asia.
After Belfort retired following a loss to Lyoto Machida in May 2018, our Young Dinosaur came out of retirement in December 2018. Makes sense.
Vitor is 2-4 with another loss overturned to a no contest because Kelvin Gastelum likes to smoke weed and binge on breakfast cereals. Let the record show including the no contest TKO, Belfort’s last seven losses have come via six violent KO/TKO and one Jon Jones submission.
When Belfort losses, it’s via a highlight reel.
With all that being said, Belfort is now an ONE Championship fighter and MiddleEasy gets the funny feeling that he’s about due for a career renaissance.
Because he still has young lion’s blood running through his veins, it would be a very Belfort thing of him to suddenly run off a five fight winning streak as soon as he enters the ONE atmosphere. It’s kind of what Vitor does, and again, he has been fighting as a pro since 19 freaking 96.
Some of Vitor’s best career stories were likely told to someone via a phone-booth payphone.

Yes! This is the type of Vitor Belfort wordplay the MMA world needs in 2019. Jump back on the Vitor bandwagon, your seat is still warm from 1997, 2001, 2009, and 2013.
