Vítor Belfort : a christian MMA fighter like Pacquiao vs Dela Hoya

Published

on

Vítor Belfort is set to fight this September 2021. However, there is something unusual. Belfort is a christian just like Manny Pacquiao.

\”I just thank God every day. I’m happy. I’m healthy. Bottom line is it\’s just the way you treat life and life will treat you back. Make sure you’re happy with whatever is going on in your life. I think the key of life is just be happy with what\’s in front of you and the decision of my life is under God and God knows what\’s best for me.\”

During their face off with Dela Hoya, the crown never heard any offensive words. But who is Belfort?

From his wikipedia biography it says that, Belfort was born on 1 April 1977, in Rio de Janeiro to a French-Brazilian father and a Greek-Brazilian mother. He is married to Joana Prado, with whom he has three children.They started dating in 2000, broke up but reunited during a reality show in 2002. That same year Belfort appeared with Joana when she was photographed for the Brazilian edition of Playboy.

On 9 January 2004, Vítor\’s sister, Priscila Belfort disappeared and the relatives received no information about her. In August 2007, a woman (identified as Elaine Paiva) confessed that she participated in her kidnapping and killing[74] and that she was kidnapped to pay off a four thousand dollar debt Paiva had with drug dealers. Paiva was arrested along with three others alleged to be involved in the kidnapping. The group allegedly buried her body in the woods in Rio de Janeiro where police conducted searches but her remains have never been found. Her family however does not accept this version and believes that Priscila is still alive somewhere. Vítor still maintains a missing page on the Brazilian version of his website.

Belfort speaks Portuguese, English, and Spanish.

He is a devout Christian. Belfort believes the most important key to his success and longevity in the sport is that he is happy with what he does. \”I just thank God every day. I’m happy. I’m healthy. Bottom line is it\’s just the way you treat life and life will treat you back. Make sure you’re happy with whatever is going on in your life. I think the key of life is just be happy with what\’s in front of you and the decision of my life is under God and God knows what\’s best for me.\” Belfort also appeared in a testimonial video on I Am Second, in which he shares his story of his faith in Jesus Christ.

Belfort appears in the video for the song \”I\’m Down\” by The Almost.

On April 26, 2018, Belfort became a naturalized American citizen.

Former UFC fighter Francis Ngannou accused AJ camp of ‘trickery’ when he suffered devastating knockdowns in the first and second round last March 8, 2024 in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

The MMA fighter and former UFC heavyweight champion said that AJ camp sabotaged him by letting him go early in the arena.

“We both fought at 3am. What I think, something that’s happened is that they get me to the arena very early. Like my pickup time was 10.30pm to go to the arena. And then when we get to the arena, they tell us that we are scheduled around 1.45am. right?” Ngannou blurted.

He believed that he came exhausted, which resulted in his humiliating defeat.
