UFC 224 Play-By-Play: Lyoto Machida Front Kick KO's Vitor Belfort

The first round saw more caution than action, with Belfort exploding once or twice but whiffing, and Machida running through his katas. The second he saw a slight opening in Belfort's guard, he landed the crane kick beautifully which spelt the end for Belfort and his career in the UFC.

Every time an event like this weekend's UFC 224 pay-per-view in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil rolls around, certain pockets of the MMA audience start to wax nostalgic about the good old days when pay-per-view lineups were all killer, no filler, as if Saturday's main card lineup is some kind of subpar offering. At UFC 129, Machida finished Couture in the second round with a front kick, in what marked the final fight of that legend's career.

Machida, 39, said after the fight that he didn't train his front kick as much.

"I want to thank my team".

"It's been a long ride, everything in life has a beginning, a middle and end". Both fighters have held the light heavyweight championship in the past, and Belfort came in with the crowd on his side because of fighting in his hometown. "It's time for me to take care of my family and endeavors".

Well, after the win, Machida repeated his call out of Michael Bisping. So congratulations to Machida. "I know it was a lot like the kick I got in Randy Couture when he retired, with the difference that his was right and that was left, so maybe it is the history repeating itself".

"He surprised me pretty well", Belfort said in his post-fight interview.

"Michael Bisping, I'm still waiting for you".

If this truly is the end for Belfort, then he can sign off knowing he enjoyed a long, successful and popular career from the second he appeared first in the promotion at the age of 19.
