Fightography: Vitor Belfort
Feb 17, 2015
It was 1996 when Vitor Belfort, aged only 18, accepted a dangerous fight with Jon Hess – a giant of a man who’d been banned from the UFC after using low blows and eye-rakes. Moments before the fight, Hess’s representatives insisted the contest now be fought with no-holds-barred - specifically demanding that low blows, attacking the eyes and biting be legal. Belfort’s legendary trainer, the irrepressible Carlson Gracie, told Team Hess to bring a gun if they wanted… Belfort picks up the story in this Fightography.
