Vitor Belfort is in a giving mood this Christmas.

The former UFC light heavyweight champion made a social media post on Christmas Eve responding to claims that Wanderlei Silva wanted to face him again.

And “The Phenom” is willing to make it happen:

“THE TIME IS TICKING #42 @wandfc — i heard that you are asking to fight me again? I hope this is true. I have a Christmas gift for you. — i am willing to give you the most anticipated #rematch that will ever happen in the #mma combat sports history. Do you accept my GIFT ?? If you do, I already suggest the date and the location. What about the end of February, Singapore ?? @onechampionship #ONE is one of the most growing sports organization in the world ?

“Merry Christmas @wandfc @yodchatri @onechampjp @onechampionship let’s give to this amazing fans, this fight on the best platform of combat sports.”

Belfort and Silva first faced each other back at UFC Brazil in October 1998 where the former came out on top with a first-round TKO victory.

Of course, Belfort is currently signed to ONE Championship. Silva, meanwhile, recently signed with Bare Knuckle FC. As it stands, it’s hard to see a fight happen between the two, unless either fighter’s contract allows them to fight for other organizations.

It’s also hard to agree with Belfort’s claim that this is the most anticipated rematch in combat sports history.

Regardless, do you want to see this fight happen?

It’s been nearly a year since UFC legend Vitor Belfort inked a deal with ONE Championship.

Belfort is gearing up to make his promotional debut sometime in 2020 and is hard back to work in the gym in the meantime. Recently, legendary coach Henri Hooft took to his Instagram to share some footage of himself working with Belfort. Here’s what he had to say.

@vitorbelfort still got it and I am talking about technique..precision and power been working with a lot of great strikers in the last 31 years and his in in the top when it comes to striking skill set”

Famed Singapore coach Yodkunsup Por Pongsawang also shared some footage of himself working with Belfort, in which he’s looking very noticeably shredded as he prepares to return to MMA competition.

“Every time he’s in Singapore, UFC World Champion Vitor “The Phenom” Belfort @vitorbelfort makes sure to train with Trainer of World Champions Yodkunsup Por Pongsawang @yodmaster from the EVOLVE Fight Team!”

Belfort has won just two of his last six fights. He most recently suffered a brutal front kick knock out at the hands of Lyoto Machida at UFC 224 in May of 2018. He does still own the UFC record for knockouts with 12. ONE appears to think there is still life in the “Phenom.

What do you think about Belfort’s physique ahead of his debut with ONE Championship?

43-year-old mixed martial arts (MMA) legend Wanderlei Silva recently inked a deal with Bare-Knuckle FC (BKFC).

Silva’s first fight is expected to be announced at the promotion’s next event. However, he already has an idea of who he’d like to fight. Speaking to AG Fight about his recent signing with BKFC, Silva called out fellow former UFC star Vitor Belfort for a bare-knuckle brawl.

“I think I have finally found the perfect stage to settle all my beefs in the sport,” Silva said. “You can only use your hands in bare-knuckle boxing. I sent one of the promoters an audio clip, they’re offering quite the amount, an impressive amount of cash, more than what I’m making.

“I told them I really wanted to fight, but against a particular guy. I would accept if I could face Vitor Belfort. Bare knuckles, five two-minute rounds, only boxing. I want to see if he’s a man or if he’ll run. We found the right place to settle one of the sport’s oldest rivalries. What’s up, Vitor? Are you in or are you going to run?”

That fight likely won’t be happening anytime soon, as Belfort is inked to a deal with ONE Championship. Although he signed with the promotion several months ago, he has yet to have a fight announced as of this writing.
