He can, however, turn another page in the horrifying chapter of his personal life, now that police in Brazil have arrested Leonardo Luiz Batista in connection with the 2004 disappearance and subsequent murder of "The Phenom's" sibling, Priscila, according to Brazilian newspaper Diario do Grande ABC (via Sherdog).
Batista is not the first suspect to be held for Belfort's disappearance.
Police previously arrested a Brazilian woman named Elaine Paiga Da Silva back in 2007, who claimed she kidnapped and murdered Belfort, but when authorities were led to the area in which Priscila's body was said to be buried, nothing could be found to confirm Silva's confession.
It was this tragic moment in his life when he surrendered himself to God (via Christian Post):
"We have words for if you've lost your husband, you're a widow; if you've lost your parent, you're an orphan; but if you lost your child, they don't have a name for that. That's so painful that they don't have a name for that. I think there is two ways to get to God, through love or through pain. Mine was through pain. I can see now that through that tribulation, I'm a new man. I'm a strong man. I've matured. I'm not perfect. I still struggle with many things, but it's a process. I'm in the middle of the process and every day I try and prove myself so I can fight through that process, which never ends."
The motive? Ransom, which is an ongoing problem in Brazil.
Just a few weeks after she vanished, Vitor went on to win the UFC light heavyweight title from Randy Couture in the main event of the UFC 46: "Supernatural" pay-per-view (PPV), which took place at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada, back on Jan. 31, 2004 (read about it).
Fast-forward nine years later and his quest for a championship -- as well as his quest for justice -- continues.
