    According to the original plan, Vitor Belfort, MMA legend was to take on Nate Marquardt on June 3, the main card of UFC 212,in a fight that will go down as the last of his legendary career.

    However, it seems his fighting days are far from over. Recent reports has it that since the announcement of his retirement fight with Marquardt, Belfort has backtracked on his retirement fights.

    His current position now suggests that even though this might be his last fight in the UFC, it would not be his last overall.

    After making the necessary clarifications on the circumstances surrounding his upcoming fight with Marquardt, Gustavo Lacerda, Belfort’s manager who spoke to the MMA Ganhador podcast has offered up even more information.

At the age of seventeen, Penn began training in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu after being introduced to it by his neighbor,

    Fighting career

    Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu:
    In 1997 Penn began training Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu under Ralph Gracie, eventually earning his purple belt from Gracie.

    Ultimate Fighting Championship:
    His accomplishments in the World Jiu-Jitsu Championship caught the attention of Dana White and the Ultimate Fighting Championship who convinced him to switch to MMA.

    Fighting and Entertainment Group
    Shortly after defeating Hughes, Penn signed to fight for the Japanese Fighting and Entertainment Group’s (FEG) K-1 promotion citing a lack of challenging fights left for him in the UFC. The UFC promptly stripped him of the welterweight title, claiming Penn breached his contract and that the signing constituted him refusing to defend his title. Penn filed a suit against the UFC and publicized his side of the conflict, claiming his UFC contract had already expired. Penn filed a motion to stop the UFC from awarding a new welterweight title, but that motion was denied. In his first fight for FEG, Penn fought again at welterweight (170 pounds) and defeated Duane Ludwig at the 2004 K-1 MMA Romanex show in under five minutes by arm triangle choke.

    Return to the UFC:
    In early 2006 at UFC 56, UFC president Dana White announced that Penn and the UFC had agreed to a settlement and Penn was to return as a top welterweight contender. Penn re-debuted on March 4 at UFC 58, losing to Georges St. Pierre by split decision in a fight that determined the number one welterweight contender.
