Vitor Belfort Talks About Facing Dan Henderson In Brazil

Vitor Belfort Talks About Facing Dan Henderson In Brazil

Former UFC champion Vitor Belfort can avenge one of his losses this November when he faces Dan Henderson at UFC Fight Night 32.

In 2006, Henderson scored a decision victory over Belfort while both fighters were competing in PRIDE.

Belfort (23-10) has since turned his career back around, scoring finishes over Michael Bisping and Luke Rockhold this year. The bout will take place at light heavyweight, though, as “The Phenom” has stated he will not compete at 185 unless it’s for the title.

“I’m excited about the opportunity to face a fighter who has also made history in the sport and beaten champions like Fedor Emelianenko. I’m very happy to fight him again,” Belfort said. “It will also be great to train together and fight at the same event as Cezar Mutante. I am very happy to see how it is shining and know that he will face a great fighter, whom I also love.”

Also, UFC officials announced that the co-main event will indeed feature Mutante taking on Daniel Sarafian. The two were originally set to meet for the title of Ultimate Fighter: Brazil, but Sarafian suffered an injury in training.
