Tonight at 7 pm ET on pay-per-view, Triller Fight Club return with their most abominable offering yet, featuring 58-year-old Evander Holyfield in the main event against 44-year-old former MMA star Vitor Belfort in an exhibition bout.
We’ll have live updates, “highlights,” and full coverage in this stream:
The latest reports are that Triller, the promoters of the event, will respect whatever Holyfield’s call is, and the call is pretty clearly going to be an exhibition, which is reportedly what was signed despite other reports and attempts to promote otherwise. The Florida commission have said they were ready to sanction it as a pro fight that counts on records and all that, and whatever the end decision is on that, Triller say the fight will be scored and whatnot like a normal pro bout.
The same probably goes for the bout between David Haye and Joe Fournier, which also wasn’t listed on BoxRec, then was, now isn’t, just like Holyfield-Belfort.
As for two fully sanctioned, fully real fights, we’ll see a pair of 46-year-old MMA legends, Tito Ortiz and Anderson Silva, duke it out in a fight where Ortiz missed weight on Friday, plus an actual, honest to goodness, normal, well-matched fight between junior lightweights Andy Vences and Jono Carroll, two veteran fighters who need a win.
