Legendary former UFC champion Vitor Belfort was scheduled to make what he said would be his final walk to the Octagon against Uriah Hall in the co-main event of tomorrow night’s (Jan. 14, 2018) UFC Fight Night 124 from St. Louis, Missouri.

Earlier today (Jan. 13, 2018), however, the bout was scrapped after Hall experienced weight-cutting issues.

Belfort then took to his official Instagram account to react to the situation, sending his well wishes to Hall:

Pessoal, dediquei dois meses da minha vida para esse training camp. Passei esse tempo todo longe da minha família e todos sabem como isso é difícil para mim… Contratei os melhores profissionais q pude, minha equipe se dedicou intensamente mesmo durante as festas de final de ano. Cumpri todas minhas obrigações na semana da luta, cortei peso e subi na balança com o peso q tenho q bater para lutar… Infelizmente meu oponente teve algum problema durante o corte de peso. Torço para sua breve recuperação. Agora só quero voltar para casa e ver minha família… Muito obrigado por todo apoio e carinho de todos os q me acompanham. I dedicated 2 months for this training camp. Stayed away from my family and who knows me knows how hard this is for me. I spent all necessary to have the best structure to achieve my goal. My team had an intense dedication even during the holidays. I did all my fight week obligations, cut the weight and made the fight weight. Unfortunately my opponent had a problem during his weight cut, I wish him a soon recovery @uriahhall .Now I just want to go back home and see my family. Thanks for all the support along this training camp.Love you all!!

Given that the bout never came to fruition, it’s quite possible that Belfort will fight once more before officially retiring.

Would you like to see the UFC re-book a bout between him and Hall, or should Belfort receive a new opponent?
