MMA tattoos have a habit of being... not great. Something about the mix of cage fighting and body-modifying artwork seems to create a certain base level of get-your-own-name-put-on-your-body-ness. And of course there’s always your share of melting Johnny Cash and damaged Darren Elkins to go around.
Leave it then to Vitor Belfort – who long ago mastered the art of the terrible MMA haircut – to go out and get some really nice work done. ‘The Phenom’ showed off his new ink on his Instagram page in a brief video.
Belfort was last seen taking a unanimous decision win over Nate Marquardt at UFC 212 back in June. The victory broke a 3-bout winless streak, stretching back to his KO of Dan Henderson in 2015. He hasn’t had a next fight announced yet, but when Belfort does step in the Octagon again he’ll be taking showing off a lot of new ink as well.
