Belfort-Henderson II official for UFN 32

Vitor Belfort and Dan Hederson, as expected, will top off UFC Fight Night 32 in Golania, Golas, Brazil. The five-rounder serves as a rematch of their 2006 encounter in PRIDE Fighting Championships, in which Henderson won a unanimous decision.  After the infamous UFC 151 debacle that led to Belfort getting to fight UFC light-heavyweight champion Jon Jones at UFC 152, Belfort has since torn through his share of the middleweight division, while Henderson struggled in bouts with former champions Lyoto Machida and Rashad Evans.
