Vitor Belfort will be making his return to competition in February 2022 when he takes on former boxing champion Chad Dawson at Triller Triad Combat II.
The first Triller Triad combat event took place last month, with Frank Mir, Matt Mitrione, and “Platinum” Mike Perry among those competing in the “MMA vs. Boxing” hybrid-themed event. Triad Combat features a unique ruleset that attempts to bridge the two sports into an even playing field within a triangular ring and two-minute rounds.
After disposing of a 58-year-old Evander Holyfield in September, Belfort will now move on to a younger opponent in 39-year-old former light heavyweight boxing champion Chad Dawson.
