September’s weirdest and most controversial combat sports event goes down TONIGHT (Sat., Sept. 11, 2021) when 58-year-old boxing legend Evander Holyfield returns to the ring to face former UFC champion Vitor Belfort atop a four-fight Triller pay-per-view (PPV) event. The PPV main card (watch it here), will also see Anderson Silva trade hands with Tito Ortiz, one-time unified Cruiserweight champ David Haye lace ‘em up against Joe Fournier, and Andy Vences face Jono Carroll in an actually reasonable Super Featherweight tussle.

Where there’s malfeasance to be found, gambling is sure to follow, and this card is no different. While not many sites are offering props (Bet365 certainly is), let’s have a look ...

Thoughts: Just bet on Belfort before more people watch Holyfield’s open workout and realize “The Real Deal” is in no condition to box. The man is a shell of his former self, a broken fighter who left the best parts of himself in the ring more than a decade ago. Belfort may be well past his best, but he’s nowhere near this broken, and Holyfield’s minor size advantage in no way offsets this.

I would, however, avoid betting on a specific outcome. While Belfort could probably batter Holyfield into submission whenever he wanted, I could easily see him choosing to have mercy. will deliver LIVE coverage of the “Holyfield vs. Belfort” FITE PPV main card, which kicks off at 7 p.m. ET, right here.
