Vitor Belfort vs. Dan Henderson 3 headed to UFC Fight Night in Brazil

BY Damon Martin • August 1, 2015

A trilogy will come to an end on Nov. 7 as Vitor Belfort faces Dan Henderson for the third time at UFC Fight Night from Sao Paulo, Brazil.

Henderson announced the fight via Twitter on Saturday night.

The series is currently tied at one win apiece with Henderson holding a victory over Belfort from their bout in PRIDE Fighting Championships in 2006, while the Brazilian picked up a huge knockout in their UFC Fight Night rematch in 2013.

Most recently, Henderson bounced back from a series of losses with a finish over Tim Boetsch, scoring a huge knockout in just 28 seconds into the first round.

Belfort will look for redemption following a first-round defeat to middleweight champion Chris Weidman back at UFC 187 in May. Prior to that loss, Belfort had won three fights in a row, all by knockout.

The third fight will likely put an end to the rivalry as Henderson and Belfort both look to get the win and pick up a big victory in the middleweight division.

Belfort vs. Henderson 3 is the first confirmed fight for the card in Brazil with more bouts expected to be announced in the coming weeks.
