Machida opens with a front kick that instantly KO's Belfort.
Belfort was knocked out by Machida in the second round of their middleweight fight, the opening of the event's main card at Jeunesse Arena in Rio de Janeiro.
At the one minute mark in the second round, Machida set up a devastating crane kick that sent Belfort crashing to the canvas and the referee immediately waved off the fight and called for medical assistance, with Machida remaining respectful in the middle of the Octagon. The fans, it's been a long ride. "I want to thank my team, Tristar".
"I always use my legs to retire people", Machida said. "It's time for me to think, and take care of my family and endeavours". In my opinion the first round definitely goes to Lyoto Machida for activity and landing the hook kick.
Following his huge win, Machida was full of respect for his Brazilian compatriot before calling out Michael Bisping; wanting to fight The Count before his eventual retirement too. "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".
The co-main event victor could - and should - end up facing the victor of the UFC 225 middleweight title fight between Robert Whittaker and Yoel Romero for the belt later this year, which should be a terrific scrap regardless of the stakes.
"He surprised me pretty well", Belfort said in his post-fight interview. "So, I would like this fight because Michael Bisping is a former champion, and this is a fight that could happen in the future". This was most likely the last bout inside an Octagon for Belfort's 26-fight UFC career.
At last June's UFC 212, Belfort temporarily quieted his critics by earning a unanimous decision win over former contender Nate Marquardt for his first victory since defeating Henderson in 2015.
