It’s February 7, 1997, a little over three years since the first UFC. It’s before the current regulations, and competitors are still permitted to fight more than once a night.

i say give him a HOF spot when he retires. i think he's earned it already and like the story says, he's still relevant.

on a different note, this story reminded me of the awesomeness of Kazushi Sakuraba. that guy beat people he never should have. if there was a MMA hall of fame that covers all the organizations, Kazushi Sakuraba would have a comfortable spot.

I agree 100% I have started a list that I call the MMA HOF and Sakuraba is the first guy I inducted to it and once Belfort retires I'll be adding him to it as well

Relevant? Vitor? As relevant as scratched eye sockets and punches to the back of the head.....that kind of relevance? In that case - hells yeah!
