Vitor Belfort Facts
- A polyglot, Vitor is fluent in Portuguese, English, and Spanish.
- In January 2004, his sister, Priscila Belfort, had disappeared and no friend or relative could come up with any information regarding this. More than 3 and a half years later, a woman called Elaine Paiva had come up with a statement that she was one of the people involved in Priscila’s kidnapping and murder. She had stated that she was forced to become a part of this because she had owed USD 4k to the mastermind of the crime and was unable to pay up.
- Elaine and 3 other people who were allegedly involved had been arrested and that they had even revealed that they had buried Priscila’s body in a forest near Rio de Janeiro. The police conducted multiple searches around the location but were unable to find a dead body. Vitor and his family refused to accept the version of the criminals and have continued to believe that somehow, somewhere, Priscilla is still alive. Vítor has continued to maintain a page on the Brazilian version of his website which contains all vital information about his sister.
- He had published an autobiography in 2012, titled Vitor Belfort: Lições de Garra, fé e Sucesso.
