Vitor Belfort's retirement fight has been delayed

UFC broadcaster Brendan Fitzgerald announced to the media who were at the weigh-ins that Hall could not step on the scale, and the fight with Belfort was off. With the fight being cancelled, that leaves one bout left, likely indicating we'll see Belfort, 40, gear up for one last trip to the Octagon later this year (again). I pretty much cried every night. For an athlete in Vitor's position, only a select few opponents will prove suitable for such a monumental event and with Bisping also looking to close out his career, it would be the ideal fight for the fans to experience this coming March. Just to think back, sometimes I flash back and I say wow I'm still doing this.

However, when Belfort was on, he was the epitome of fast-twitch muscle violence; his head kick knockouts of Luke Rockhold, Michael Bisping, and Dan Henderson and his iconic 44-second knockout of Wanderlei Silva will forever remain etched in the annals of UFC knockout highlight reels. I have other things, I have a business of my own, I developed have a system, I developed a group class training system that we're going to franchise. My mom's like, 'You've got to embrace it. "After that, I will put my body to rest". Of course, it's not the same. This is insane. I'm very thankful but I think my body needs to rest.

"I think we got to know the time to start and I think we need to know the time to end". I accomplished a lot of great things and I want to do all the great things.

He recently did an interview on the UFC Unfiltered podcast to discuss this fight.

His last win was against Nate Marquardt, who just retired himself. To give you an idea, South Park made its debut and Gastelum was only 6-years old while Vitor Belfort was making his UFC debut.

Losing Hall and Belfort is a big hit to tomorrow night's event - especially considering the fight was expected to be Belfort's final fight of his legendary career.
