Former UFC champion Vitor Belfort was recently named one of the opposing coaches of the upcoming The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil.
Everything has come full circle for the legendary fighter, who has had to deal with more struggles than most in the world of mixed martial arts.
Although he still has a great many fighters left ahead of him, here's a look at Belfort's greatest victories from all around the world.
Beginning his career as an undersized heavyweight, Belfort would soon make a career that would be dictated solely on his ability to out-gun and out-hustle bigger opponents, kind of like he does here against Jon Hess in his MMA debut on October 11, 1996, besting the big man in seconds.
Whilst under the Pride banner, Belfort had taken up battles both in the light heavy and heavyweight divisions. After suffering an upset decision loss to Japanese legend Kazushi Sakuraba in April 1999, Belfort bounced back the next year.
He used his impressive boxing acumen to keep Dutch striker Gilbert Yvel at bay in June 2000, rocking the big man on several occasions, earning him the decision win.
Continuing his run through bigger opposition in Pride, Belfort was pitted in May 2001 against perennial contender Heath Herring, a big man who wields some big power.
Belfort exploited Herring's inability to fend off the takedown when he moved the action all over the place, using his speed to beat Herring to the punch and soon after bringing the fight to the canvas courtesy of a double leg.
After 15 minutes of action, Belfort earned the hard fought decision win.
After winning the UFC's 12th tournament in a combined two minutes of action, Belfort was next slated to take on heavy hitter Tank Abbott.
The Californian had already shown some crippling knockout power, but at UFC 13 in May 1997, the powerhouse was blitzed by the wily Belfort. Belfort used his speed and punching prowess early to knock Abbott down to the canvas, notching the TKO victory in just 52 seconds.
After spending his career both in the heavyweight and light heavyweight divisions, Belfort eventually pared down to middleweight where he took on fellow UFC veteran Terry Martin in July 2008 under the Affliction banner.
Looking to regain footing in his career after going 4-5 in his previous nine outings, Belfort immediately captivated the interested of the MMA community once again. He knocked out Martin inside of the second round, leaving the wrestler out cold through the ropes courtesy of a powerful uppercut.
In his initial light heavyweight debut, Belfort had tons of pressure riding on his shoulders. There, the Brazilian was recently removed from his first career defeat, a TKO loss at the hands of future UFC Hall of Famer Randy Couture.
Belfort was pitted against fellow Brazilian Wanderlei Silva in October 1998, in the UFC's initial foray to Brazil where "The Phenom" scored arguably his most recognizable victory, knocking out "The Axe Murderer" in just 44 seconds of action.
After dropping a decision to future champion Chuck Liddell in June 2002 in a rollicking, back-and-forth affair, Belfort was looking to reemerge as a top contender in the division. He used Marvin Eastman in June 2003 as his springboard back to the top of the division.
After a short feeling-out process, Belfort waded into the pocket with hooks, clinching with Eastman early, securing the muay thai plum and plowing knees to the face of the "Beastman."
Some ground-and-pound blows later sealed the deal and Belfort eventually earned the TKO victory after 67 seconds of action, leaving Eastman a bloody mess.
Looking to earn the respect of the MMA community once again, Belfort took on one of the best middleweights in the world in the form of Olympic wrestler Matt Lindland in January 2009.
The duo met under the Affliction banner. Although Lindland held a significant advantage on the ground, the fight only went to the canvas when Belfort connected on a flushed left hook that sent the Team Quest fighter to the mat.
Some heavy shots on the ground sealed the stoppage, giving Belfort the knockout win in just 37 seconds.
Prior to his battle with Japan's own Yoshihiro Akiyama, Belfort was brutally knocked out by an Anderson Silva frontkick during their championship tilt this February.
Looking to regain momentum in the middleweight division, Belfort took on the tough, wily Akiyama at UFC 133 this August.
Belfort struck hard early, rocking the heavy hitting Judoka with a hook early. Belfort followed up the action and eventually had left Akiyama out cold, face-first into the canvas in less than two minutes, earning "Knockout of the Night" for his efforts.
After exiting the now defunct Affliction show, Belfort rejoined the UFC roster. His first call of duty came in the form of former 185-pound kingpin Rich Franklin in September 2009.
Looking to make an immediate splash back in the UFC, Belfort waited until Franklin advanced before uncorking a quick combination, with a left hook to level "Ace" to the mat.
A few punches to the head later, Belfort was the winner by knockout, claiming the emphatic victory in just over three minutes of action.
