Vitor Belfort is one of the greatest fighters the UFC has ever had but he is nearing the end of the road.
Kelvin Gastelum torched “The Phenom” in the opening round after Belfort had a decent opening few minutes. Belfort was throwing sharp, lightning-fast strikes, but nothing he threw or landed had any real affects on the Yuma, Ariz., fighter. Gastelum picked his spots and then unloaded a vicious straight left to Belfort’s face, dropping him. When Gastelum couldn’t finish him off with his follow-up punches, he turned Belfort’s lights out moments later with another missile of a left fist to the grill.
The end came officially at 3:52 of the opening round, giving Gastelum the biggest win of his career.
