What's the name of the movie where a young man finds this item that attaches itself to him and somehow turns him into a monster? I think it is from the '80's or '90's.

Other people are looking for that same item and they can turn into monsters, too. The movie goes on and the young man eventually kills the other guys in their monster form and the last bad guy transforms into the biggest monster of all and was killed by the young man in monster form, too.

There was this one part where they thought they had killed him but he emerged from another monster's belly by cutting his belly with a blade on his elbow.

Was it called Magiver?

You might be looking for an anime called The Guyver: Bio-Booster Armor, or the live action movie based off of it called The Guyver.

Live action movie description:

The Guyver (released in Europe as Mutronics) is a 1991 American science fiction film loosely based on the Japanese manga series of the same name. The film tells of a young man, Sean Barker, who discovers an alien artifact called The Unit which changes Barker into a alien-hybrid super soldier called The Guyver. Barker learns that a major corporation called Kronos is after The Guyver Unit and soon discovers that the people behind Kronos are not human after all. The film was met with a mixed to negative reaction from critics and fans. A sequel was followed in 1994 called Guyver: Dark Hero, which was received more favorably than its predecessor.

Or one of the many adaptations.
