At the ONE Championship Elite Retreat, Gurdarshan Mangat had the opportunity to meet the man who inspired him to push through a tragic loss and pursue a career in martial arts. Vitor Belfort has faced many hardships in his life, none greater than losing his beloved sister, who was never found after being kidnapped in Brazil. In a video that went viral, “The Phenom” spoke openly about how he coped with the pain, inspiring countless individuals to find peace in their personal struggles. As Mangat revealed to Belfort at the retreat, that video gave him the strength to overcome the loss of his cousin, who took his own life as a teenager. Mangat would use Belfort’s words as constant motivation to push through any obstacle, putting him on a path to one day become India’s top mixed martial artist.
