The Phenom got his start in 1996 by defeating Jon Hess before making his now-legendary UFC debut at UFC 12 in February 1997. But he said fans should expect the same hard-charging fighter that took the MMA world by storm this past year. "After that, I will put my body to rest". This is it. Breaking news. This is it. I'm very thankful, but I think my body needs to rest. Sometimes I flashback and say, 'Wow I'm still doing this. I have a business of my own, I developed a group class training system that we're going to franchise.

Clark holds tremendous respect for VanZant's ability to create commercial opportunities for herself, but believes it could catch up with her: "I'd say focusing on so many other things; you can still be successful for a while, but there's going to come a point where if you're not willing to commit 100 per cent you're not go as far as you can go".

"You can not tell me that the 40-year-old has a fresh body". This is insane. I'm very thankful but I think my body needs to rest. Life is about seasons and you've got to know the seasons. I got to not worry about having to work, that definitely has been great. I'm just leaving the sport where guys in my era are never expected to still be fighting and still be relevant.

"Well there are a lot of girls between me and the top who lost their debuts. I'm about to start on my second journey of life and I'm happy".

VAR was used in the FA Cup tie between Brighton and Crystal Palace and again in the Carabao Cup match between Chelsea and Arsenal .

By all accounts, Belfort is entering the final fight on his current UFC contract and he's often talked about the promotion starting some sort of "legends league" where competitors at an older age could still compete without facing young, up and coming talent.

His last win was against Nate Marquardt, who just retired himself. Belfort made this announcement while a guest on the UFC Unfiltered Podcast with Matt Serra and Jim Norton.

Belfort will ostensibly finish out his career against fellow middleweight striker Uriah Hall.
