Vitor Belfort To Make Dan Henderson Work For 25 Minutes

Vitor Belfort fights as middleweight and light heavyweight, but considers 185 pounds his true division. He will step once again inside the Octagon as a light heavyweight when he meets Dan Henderson. Belfort is expecting to make the UFC Fight Night 32 main event a memorable 25 minutes.

“That’s the type of fight that the fans will enjoy,” said Belfort. “It’s going to be intense. I have 14 weeks until the fight and preparation requires dedication and sacrifice. I’ll focus on winning the fight. I’m preparing myself for a five-round intense fight. That’s the way I predict the fight going.”

Belfort competed as a light heavyweight most recently at last September’s UFC 152.  He was defeated by champion Jon Jones and returned this year with a pair of middleweight stoppages.

Henderson hasn’t been able to land the victory this year. He took split-decision defeats to Lyoto Machida and Rashad Evans.

Their fight will be a rematch from PRIDE 32, where Henderson earned a decision win. They headline UFC Fight Night 32 on November 9. It comes from the Goiania Arena in Brazil.
