Mixed Martial Arts fighter Vitor Belfort wants to sell his knockout mansion in Lighthouse Point, FL. The gated estate recently landed on the market for $2.89 million.

The prizefighter picked up the waterfront property, located in a suburb of Fort Lauderdale, for $2.16 million in 2019.

Built in 2003, the “recently reimagined” contemporary space measures 5,000 square feet and offers five bedrooms and 5.5 bathrooms. Located on the Flamingo Waterway, the property includes 86 feet of water frontage and a deepwater dock that can accommodate a yacht. From the backyard dock, it’s just a short ride out to the Atlantic Ocean.

Inside, the floor plan includes a formal foyer entry, a living room with a fireplace, and eye-popping wall decor.

A large dining area allows for a long dining table, which is set by glass doors that open to the pool.

The gourmet kitchen includes two sinks, granite counters, and a large island, as well as a breakfast bar with seating. The kitchen opens to a family room, which looks out on water views. An outdoor area for dining has a built-in grill.

On the second floor, the master bedroom and bathroom includes a sitting area and a balcony, a massive bath, and a walk-in closet stuffed with designer duds that the Home Edit team might like to get their hands on. All five bedrooms in the home are en suite.

Other luxe details include marble flooring, a wine bar, an elevator, and three balconies.

Outdoor living options abound, with a lounge space and an infinity-edge pool and spa. Boats and other water toys can be parked at the dock.

A three-bedroom garage completes the property.

Before he bought this property, the cage fighter owned a crib in Parkland, FL, which he sold in 2018 for $1.35 million.

Belfort, 43, is a native of Brazil and made his UFC debut in in 1997 at UFC 12. In 2004, he won the light heavyweight UFC championship at UFC 46. He last entered the ring in 2018, and holds a career record of 26-14-1.

Lakers Star Anthony Davis Sells Westlake Village, CA, Mansion for $6.6M

The NBA All-Star Anthony Davis has sold his trophy home in Westlake Village, CA, for $6.6 million, the Los Angeles Times reported. The Los Angeles Lakers center let the place go for a loss. The massive property last changed hands in 2018 for $7,479,000, according to realtor.com®.

Davis apparently nabbed the property while he was still playing for the New Orleans Pelicans. He then attempted to flip the home this spring for just under $8 million.

He cut the price in October to $7.5 million, and it sold at the end of the year at the even lower amount, leaving Davis with a rare loss—in real estate, at least.

Perched in the guard-gated North Ranch Country Club Estates, the 15,815-square-foot residence offers five bedrooms, six full bathrooms, and two half-bathrooms. Built in 1996, the contemporary Mediterranean has been expanded and remodeled over the years.

The property is clearly designed with a basketball star in mind. The layout includes a full indoor court and sports gym. 

You enter from a motor court into a grand, two-story entry, and the floor plan includes formal living and dining rooms. A remodeled kitchen, with granite counters, double islands, and a pantry, adjoins a breakfast nook. The enormous master bedroom includes a fireplace, en suite bathroom, and walk-in closet.

Other stand-out features include a home theater, office, rec room, wine cellar, and separate guesthouse.

The 2.33-acre spread has an infinity-edge pool with dual slides, water features, and spa. The resort-style grounds continue with a covered outdoor kitchen, manicured turf, sundecks, and sunken trampoline.

Other amenities include outdoor security cameras, smart home technology, and solar panels. A four-car garage completes the property.

But “The Brow” isn’t without a place to rest his head. He had been renting a swanky Bel-Air mansion for a steep, $50,000 monthly lease, according to TMZ. The six-bedroom baller estate in a gated community features a gourmet kitchen, gym, pool, and basketball court, which he seems to prefer on his properties.

A native of Chicago, Davis, 27, was selected by the New Orleans Hornets (now Pelicans) in 2012. The seven-time All-Star was also named the All-Star Game MVP in 2017. He moved to the Lakers in 2019, where he helped the team clinch the NBA championship in 2020.

Jordan Cohen, estate director with Re/Max One, held the listing.
