Vitor Belfort Says Bout With Uriah Hall Is His Last

Vitor Belfort Says Bout With Uriah Hall Is His Last

The women's flyweight bout between Paige VanZant and Jessica-Rose Clark will now fill in as the co-main event of the evening.

Capping off a almost three-decade-long career in mixed martial arts (MMA), Vitor Belfort (26-13 1 NC) will reportedly retire following his fight with Uriah Hall on Sunday night in St. Louis. Belfort weighed in at 186 pounds.

Belfort, who briefly held the light heavyweight belt in the mid aughts, fought for several UFC titles in his lengthy career, falling short to Anderson Silva, Jon Jones, and Chris Weidman. A pair of legends, a pair of retirements and a fight that would serve as a fitting sequel to an earlier rivalry, one that would be a flawless swansong for both men involved. Now, the questions comes to whether or not Belfort will go through with another fight before he hangs up his gloves. "We got to know the time to start and I think we need to know the time to end and it's about time". I think I did more than enough. Just to think back, sometimes I flashback just like Matt [Sera] said, and I'm like, 'Wow, I'm still doing this, wow man, this is insane.' I'm very thankful, but I think my body need to rest. This is insane. I'm very thankful but I think my body needs to rest. Belfort suffered three TKO defeats in as many fights before that, though the most recent of those losses was overturned after Kelvin Gastelum failed a drug test for marijuana metabolites. "That's the number. And then we start talking. Many millions", he continued. "I have a lot of friends fighting, so I will always be prepared because I love doing this, this is my lifestyle, but it has to be very, very, very interesting because I'm happy with this decision".


It's unclear which bout will now step into the four-fight main card in St. Louis, headlined by a featherweight matchup between Jeremy Stephens and Dooho Choi. The event will mark the promotion's first visit to the city. Fightful is providing live coverage of the event, which airs live on Fox Sports 1.
