Vitor Belfort picked up a huge victory on Saturday as he defeated the legendary Evander Holyfield in Triller’s main event.

The former UFC light-heavyweight champion stopped Holyfield in the first round after dropping the 58 year old and following the knockdown with a barrage of unanswered punches.

Once the referee stepped in, most boxing fans were relieved that it was over for Holyfield.

After the fight, Belfort and Triller boss Ryan Kavanaugh called out Jake Paul after the fight.

“We’ve got $25million,” Belfort said during his post-fight interview. “Winner takes all! Let’s go Jake Paul, stop running from me.

“He earned my respect, but he’s still a Disney kid! Let me teach you a lesson, you’re going to be my kid, I’ll be your daddy. I’m going to put you on my lap, you’re going to sleep like a baby.

“You better start training, all of your fans are going to be Vitor Belfort fans. I’ve got family, you don’t have family… America needs me, not you!”

Kavanaugh then upped the ante to $30 million and to fight on Thanksgiving Day, November 25.

Paul has already said that his team are working towards facing Tommy Fury next, but the 4-0 fighter could be tempted by the major payday on offer.

Belfort was on cloud nine after defeating Holyfield and he earned the praise of former U.S. President Donald Trump at the close of the show.

“You are some fighter,” Trump said. “I have to tell you, you have a couple of friends between Jorge and Junior, and my son, my ‘junior,’ they said you’re going to do fantastically well…I said, ‘Well, but boxing’s not his thing.’ Junior said, ‘Yes it is, you just watch.’

“You are a great patriot and we appreciate it,” Trump added when speaking to Belfort.

“Vitor, your stock was very high, but it’s even higher tonight because you beat somebody who is, I don’t know, I think probably one of the greatest of all time,” Trump continued.

 “There’s no question about Evander and we love Evander. I know Evander, and I’ve never seen that happen to Evander. I’ve been with Evander a long time and it’s just one of those things, you were really fantastic.”
