Former UFC champion knocked out Evander Holyfield a mere one minute forty-nine seconds into the game. Belfort started the fight with a stream of punches as Evander crumbled to the floor and had to tap out soon to avoid the punishment. The referee interrupted right on the mark and prevented further mayhem. Evander is going to turn fifty-nine in around a month.
When asked if Vitor should have held back because of Holyfield’s age, he said the following: “He threw a hard cross and hard hooks. Instincts are hard, and instincts kickback. He came very hard in the beginning. It's a fight. He's a legend. My style has always been like that."
