UFC Fighters command a lot of respect, but there are also people who want to prove that they can take down an MMA fighter. Vitor Belfort is not someone that you want to mess with, but one YouTuber thought otherwise.
A YouTuber named The Real Tarzann seemed to get in a brawl with Belfort after a recent workout. ESPN’s Ariel Helwani posted the footage. Now those two will battle on a Triller fight card.
“There is a signed deal in place for @vitorbelfort vs. @therealtarzann to take place on the June 19 Triller card, per @RyanKavanaugh,” Helwani posted along with the video. “According to Kavanaugh, the duo got into an altercation in a Florida gym today.”
The fight will have 12-ounce gloves with eight two-minute rounds. It will also be a professional bout, pending Florida commission approval likely. Belfort is 1-0 as a boxer. We will have to see how the Real Tarzann does.
Belfort, 44, competed for Strikeforce, Pride, and Afflication as well. Most recently, he was with ONE Championship, but a fight never happened with that company. Now he is set to fight for Triller on June 19th.
Who is The Real Tarzann? His real name is Mike Holston, and he is a former zookeeper-turned-wild animal conservationist with millions of followers on social media, 6 million on Instagram by itself.
