    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.
