Scenes from a beach: Bus driver exits vehicle for photo with UFC 212 winner Vitor Belfort


Brazilian fans like their Brazilian fighters, and they don’t pass up an opportunity to meet one of the country’s biggest stars.

At Saturday’s UFC 212 event, Vitor Belfort (26-13 MMA, 15-10 UFC) picked up a narrow – some may say controversialunanimous-decision victory over fellow middleweight Nate Marquardt (35-18-2 MMA, 13-11 UFC) on the pay-per-view main card (check out his post-event comments above).

Following the event, which took place at Jeunesse Arena in Rio de Janeiro, many fighters and fans enjoyed a post-event tradition: enjoying some beers on a Rio beach to watch the sun come up.

While soaking in the post-event atmosphere (and swiping a good wifi signal), MMAjunkie’s John Morgan and Fernanda Prates caught some of the scenes, which included a Rio de Janeiro bus driver stopping his vehicle and quickly exiting to snap a pic with Belfort.

Belfort also took some time to chat with Max Holloway (18-3 MMA, 14-3 UFC), who traded in his interim featherweight title for an undisputed belt after dethroning champ Jose Aldo (26-3 MMA, 8-2 UFC) via third-round TKO in UFC 212’s headliner (via Twitter):
