Vitor Belfort Gives Emotional Retirement Speech at UFC 224

Machida delivered a rear kick to Belfort's face and did not continue with punches after seeing his opponent was out, ESPN reported.

Lyoto Machida was responsible for one of the greatest knockouts in recent memory last night when he put away Victor Belfort in devastating fashion.

While all eyes were on Saturday's UFC 224 women's bantamweight battle between reigning 135-pound queen Amanda Nunes and Raquel Pennington, fight fans witnessed a relatively significant moment in MMA history when Brazil's Vitor Belfort suffered a devastating, knockout loss to fellow countrymen Lyoto Machida.

In any case, Machida's finish of Belfort was stunning.

After suffering three-fight losing streak, Machida (24-8, 16-8 UFC) is now riding back-to-back wins.

Epic Games creative director Donald Mustard got a call from Joe, and they started "brainstorming these insane ideas". Dread it, run from it, destiny still arrived for Fortnite gamers because the Mad Titan is here.

Following the defeat, the Brazilian made it official, leaving his gloves inside the Octagon and confirming his plans to retire from MMA.

Although Bisping has said he'd prefer to go up to light heavyweight for his career finale, Machida, a fellow ex-titleholder, prefers to remain at middleweight - though he said he'd agree to a catchweight if it gets Bisping to sign a bout agreement.

We're sure Bisping is under no illusions about his abilities as a title-threat these days and for what it's worth, this could well be the fight to make - if all of the relevant pieces fall into place. Nearly identical to Anderson Silva's knockout over Belfort.

"So, I want to thank you all, my family, I'm all right". He could do a lot worse than the ever-classy Machida, who said he wasn't necessarily planning to use the front kick against Belfort on Saturday, and instead, an opening simply presented itself. "Michael Bisping, I'm still waiting for you. Before you retire, you've got to fight me first". Let us know your thoughts on the matter in the comments section below!
