Belfort backs ‘Iron’ Tyson in Jericho confrontation

Fans have been excited for Vitor “The Phenom” Belfort’s ONE Championship debut after he signed with the largest martial arts organization in the world last year. 

While his entrance into the ONE Circle is expected sometime this year, fans can catch Belfort in a different ring for now – the professional wrestling ring.

The beloved Brazilian went from ringside at All Elite Wrestling’s Double or Nothing pay-per-view last weekend to the middle of the ring in the Dynamite show on Wednesday where he got in the middle of a scuffle between “Iron” Mike Tyson and Chris Jericho.

Jericho stormed the ring alongside the Inner Circle and called out Tyson for knocking him out a few years back, demanding that the boxing legend apologize. 

Instead, “Iron” Mike came into the ring with Belfort, “Sugar” Rashad Evans, and Henry Cejudo to confront Jericho and his clique, which led to some pushing and shoving. 

It was not the first time Tyson and Belfort joined forces. After attending AEW’s Memorial Day show last weekend, they linked up for a workout.

Their workout further hyped Tyson’s fans as he hopes to return for one more exhibition boxing match to raise money for charity. 

Belfort on the other hand looks to be in excellent shape as he heads to The Home Of Martial Arts to continue his legendary career.
