Originally slated to face Oscar De La Hoya, Vitor Belfort overcame a last-minute opponent change to come out victorious against the legendary boxer Evander Holyfield.
Here’s what the rest of the MMA community had to say about the fight:
Happy for vitor but man IT sucks to see HOLYFIELD like that.

The year I born Evander Holyfield was winning medal in the Olympic game. Much respect. See him in the ring today was an inspiration.

And like that it’s over @vitorbelfort showing he is still very dangerous wonder if @OscarDeLaHoya still wants the fight with Belfort after seeing he still has the power? We could keep this boxing vs Mma going would be a honor to box ODLH @trillerfight

This hurts my soul… we shouldn’t have seen a 58 year old Holyfield in the ring. Would definitely rather it have been Oscar lol. #HolyfieldBelfort
