A former UFC champion who retired last year, Vitor Belfort is unlikely to keep his gloves hung for long. After saying goodbye last May, the Phenom manifested his desire to fight again in MMA last December — and now his wish doesn’t look to be too far off.
He is currently in Singapore by invitation of One Championship, Asia’s biggest MMA organization, and has had a good talk with Chatri Sityodtong, One’s CEO. After his departure from the UFC, Belfort said he was studying offers from other outfits, and given that One showed itself to be aggressive regarding international business in the last season, the organization may be an option for the Brazilian.
After Sityodtong took to Twitter to thank Belfort for his visit and tease some big upcoming news, Graciemag reached out to the fighter’s dad. “I’m not aware of the details,” said José Marcos Belfort, “but that’s where the money is. The organization is doing really well, and I’m rooting for him to be reaching a deal over there.”
