Have you heard the news? Vitor Belfort is returning to the UFC!!!
Now that Affliction has folded, many fighters from the canceled Trilogy event are finding other promotions to compete in, and one of those big names is Vitor Belfort.
For the first time in over four years, Belfort will be returning to the UFC. He will fight in September's UFC 103, replacing Dan Henderson in the fight against Rich Franklin. Belfort and Franklin will be competing at a catchweight of 195 lbs, which should work well for both fighters.
Being a big fan of Vitor Belfort, I decided to take you back to the greatest, most memorable, and even the saddest moments of The Phenom while he was fighting in the UFC, Pride FC, and two Affliction events. He has certainly stood out over the years for his amazing speed and power.
We all hope to see Belfort’s explosiveness when he returns to the UFC once again.
