UFC legend Vitory Belfort announced to Brazilian media during a media scrum yesterday that his fight this weekend with Uriah Hall will be the last of his career unless the UFC meets his demands. Check it out.
“I will start to open my gym franchises on Monday,” Belfort told Brazilian reporters in an online scrum on Thursday. “I’m investing in my businesses. I think it’s time to rest my body, so I’m focused on the franchises of Belfort Fitness and Lifestyle, not only in the United States but also in Brazil.”
“$10 million or more, to start the conversation. That’s the number. And then we start talking. A lot of money. A lot of money. Many millions. Anyway, I will always train and dedicate myself. 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 wonderful,” he said. “There’s no such thing as big or small card for me. When the Octagon closes, it’s the same size, and it’s a joy for me to be there. I don’t like to say goodbye, to do a party for a farewell fight. This is not soccer. It’s not a farewell fight with barbecue and music. My friend, this is a fight, you can’t relax and enjoy, say goodbye. This is a very serious sport, so it’s a pleasure for me to be here. It’s a good card, full of champions, beasts, the future of the sport. I’m very happy with everything I’ve accomplished, what I’ve done, and being able to end like this. I’m feeling special.”
