It’s been nearly a year since UFC legend Vitor Belfort inked a deal with ONE Championship.
Belfort is gearing up to make his promotional debut sometime in 2020 and is hard back to work in the gym in the meantime. Recently, legendary coach Henri Hooft took to his Instagram to share some footage of himself working with Belfort. Here’s what he had to say.
“@vitorbelfort still got it and I am talking about technique..precision and power been working with a lot of great strikers in the last 31 years and his in in the top when it comes to striking skill set”
Famed Singapore coach Yodkunsup Por Pongsawang also shared some footage of himself working with Belfort, in which he’s looking very noticeably shredded as he prepares to return to MMA competition.
“Every time he’s in Singapore, UFC World Champion Vitor “The Phenom” Belfort @vitorbelfort makes sure to train with Trainer of World Champions Yodkunsup Por Pongsawang @yodmaster from the EVOLVE Fight Team!”
Belfort has won just two of his last six fights. He most recently suffered a brutal front kick knock out at the hands of Lyoto Machida at UFC 224 in May of 2018. He does still own the UFC record for knockouts with 12. ONE appears to think there is still life in the “Phenom.
What do you think about Belfort’s physique ahead of his debut with ONE Championship?
