Veterans Vitor Belfort and Nate Marquardt will likely meet in Rio de Janeiro, on June 3.
Veterans of the sport, Vitor Belfort and Nate Marquardt will square off in Rio de Janeiro, as Combate reported the pair of middleweights agreed to meet at UFC 212.
In need of a win, Vitor Belfort (25-14) wants to end his current three-fight losing stint, when he suffered KO losses to Ronaldo Souza, Gegard Mousasi and most recently, Kelvin Gastelum. The 40-year old’s last win came in November 2015, when he knocked out Dan Henderson.
Also looking for a win to rebound from an unanimous decision loss to Sam Alvey, Nate Marquardt (35-17-2) managed to score a highlight-reel KO of Tamdan McCrory in the fight prior to the Alvey match. In fact, the former Strikeforce welterweight champion has been alternating wins and losses since 2015.
Vitor Befort will meet Nate Marquardt at UFC 212, in Rio de Janeiro, on June 3. The card will be headlined by a featherweight title fight between champion Jose Aldo and top contender Max Holloway.
