Vitor Belfort knocked out by Lyota Machida in last career fight

And while there were several fights over the course of the event that had bigger implications for the divisìons concerned, the showdown between the legendary Vitor Belfort and Lyoto Machida was a pairing that the Brazilian fans in attendance were positively ecstatic for.

It was also a mirror image of the kick that Anderson Silva used to knock Belfort out at UFC 126.

At UFC 224 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil on Saturday, Vitor Belfort expected to head off into retirement. "It's time for me to take care of my family and endeavors".

Secondly, the make-up of this card is pretty much identical to the May pay-per-view offerings from 2010 (UFC 113) and significantly better than the final main card lineup from 2011 (UFC 130), the last two years before the UFC's television deal with FOX kicked in, which is often held out as where things started to go south for the UFC.

"Life is about the beginning, middle and end and everything comes to an end". "I want to fight a few more times this year".

Belfort retired on 26-14 after the fight, while Machida called out Michael Bisping and says he can't retire until they've slugged it out. So congratulations to Machida. I was looking for the right moment. "All I need is one strike to end the fight", Machida said. "So, I would like this fight because Michael Bisping is a former champion, and this is a fight that could happen in the future".

If this truly is the end for Belfort, then he can sign off knowing he enjoyed a long, successful and popular career from the second he appeared first in the promotion at the age of 19.

After the loss, former UFC champion Belfort placed his gloves down on the mat to signify he was retiring from the sport.
