Former UFC light heavyweight champion, Vitor Belfort has revealed he’ll be returning to the octagon in November after recovering from shoulder surgery, adding he won’t be challenging for the title as it was expected due to “The Spider” not going to be ready to compete.

Belfort, posting via his Twitter page, said:

“This year I am not going to fight for the title because the champion is hurt but November we will be in action for sure that is what I can.”
