UFC Fight Night: Stephens vs. Choi Betting Preview, Odds, Card Analysis

The MMA community, as they so often do, came through with a potentially incredible silver lining to Vitor Belfort's retirement fight being canceled this weekend. However, that will not be the case any longer as his opponent, Uriah Hall, failed to weigh in on Saturday morning. Belfort did make weight at 186 pounds. After Hall mysteriously missed his time on the scale, the UFC immediately confirmed the fight would not take place.

Of course, these things happen in this sport but with this pull-out the legendary Vitor Belfort has been deprived of his retirement fight. Now, the questions comes to whether or not Belfort will go through with another fight before he hangs up his gloves. He most recently fought at UFC Fight Night 116 in September, knocking out Krzysztof Jotko in the second round.

"I think we got to know the time to start and I think we need to know the time to end". My mom's like, 'You've got to embrace it.

So far high-level strawweight stars like Rose Namajunas, Michelle Waterson and Tecia Torres have been able to take advantange of her weaknesses, but Clark isn't in that category and I think VanZant will be able to outwork and outgrapple her en-route to a decision victory.


"$10 million or more, to start the conversation", Belfort said. "I have a lot of friends fighting, so I will always be prepared because I love doing this, this is my lifestyle, but it has to be very, very, very interesting because I'm happy with this decision".

Choi (14-2) has not fought since, but the featherweight contender will be back inside the Octagon as a -160 betting favorite (bet $160 to win $100) against Jeremy Stephens (26-14) in the main event of UFC Fight Night 124 at the Scottrade Center in St. Louis Sunday. The event will mark the promotion's first visit to the city. The loss snapped a 12-fight winning streak.
