Join Bloody Elbow for live round by round results and coverage of today’s (Sept. 11) Triller Fight Club pay-per-view in Hollywood, FL.
In the main event, legendary former cruiserweight and heavyweight champion Evander Holyfield steps in on short notice to take on former UFC champion Vitor Belfort. Despite much reporting that the 58-year-old was going to be in a sanctioned pro bout against ‘The Phenom,’ apparently it will be an eight-round exhibition, with each round lasting two minutes.
The co-main event is MMA icon and ex-UFC middleweight king Anderson Silva against former UFC light heavyweight champion Tito Ortiz in a 195-pound catchweight... or at least that was the plan until Ortiz missed weight by five pounds. Silva has dealt with this before, as it happened in his last boxing match vs. Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. Instead it’ll be a 200 lbs catchweight but this is an eight-round pro bout.
All of the action starts at 6 PM ET/3 PM PT with the one-hour freeview of the prelims, then the Triller PPV begins at 7 PM ET/4 PM PT. Yes, there will be musical performances so this will be a lengthy show. Yes, we have to cover this. This post covers Silva vs. Ortiz. We’ll have a separate post for the main event.
