Vitor Belfort has once again managed to transform into a prime physical specimen, defying Father Time once more.

The 43-year-old is set to make his ONE Championship debut against the equally ferocious Alain Ngalani later this year after signing with the Singapore-based promotion in 2019.

Belfort has not fought in the cage since he announced his retirement in 2018, although it appears he has used his time away from the sport to sculpt himself back into prime condition.



MMA journalist John Hyon Ko posted the above image last week of Belfort looking incredibly ripped, before deleting the post from Twitter completely.

Belfort was knocked out by Lyoto Machida in his final UFC appearance by a front kick at UFC 244 which went viral.

The former light-heavyweight champion was 8-6 during his second stint with the company and was knocked out four times in his last five bouts.



However, his defeat to Kelvin Gastelum was changed to a no contest after the middleweight contender tested positive for marijuana.

Belfort’s debut against ‘The Panther’ Ngalani is unlikely to disappoint, with the hulking Hong Kong native also a striking specialist.

The four-time Kickboxing and Muay Thai world champion holds the ONE Championship record for the fastest finish in a heavyweight fight after stopping Hideki ‘Shrek’ Sekine in just 11 seconds.
