MANILA, Philippines – A possible match-up between former UFC champion Vitor Belfort and future hall of famer Dan Henderson is reportedly in the works for a November fight date.
MMA Fighting’s Ariel Helwani tweeted that the UFC is setting its sights on Belfort versus Henderson in Brazil.
“Dana White confirmed to me that the plan is to do Vitor Belfort vs. Dan Henderson 2 Nov. 9 in Brazil. #ufctonight,” he said.
The bout will serve as a rematch between the two mixed martial arts legends who first met in PRIDE 32 seven years ago. Henderson won by points over Belfort, who was later found positive for elevated levels of testosterone.
“Hendo” will be coming off two straight losses, while “The Phenom” Belfort is riding on a two-fight win streak.
