By The Numbers: Vitor Belfort

Vitor Belfort was a mold-breaking talent. The Brazilian burst on the mixed martial arts scene as a 19-year-old wunderkind in 1996, tore through his first four opponents in a little more than three minutes combined and established himself as a must-see attraction for more than two decades. At his best, Belfort was a breathtaking blur of violence who paired dizzying hand speed with world-class grappling skills. He captured titles in the Ultimate Fighting Championship and Cage Rage promotions and won the UFC 12 heavyweight tournament, but inconsistency and a perceived lack of commitment often left fans wanting more. While Belfort has not competed since he announced his retirement following a knockout loss to Lyoto Machida at UFC 224 on May 12, 2018, “The Phenom” continues to leave the door open for a possible return.
