Vitor Gets Hendo in Brazil

Vitor Belfort and Dan Henderson are set to scrap in November.
Dana White has announced that two titans of the light heavyweight division will meet again, as former UFC tournament champion and two-division challenger Vitor Belfort will rematch former Strikeforce and PRIDE champion Dan Henderson.

Belfort and Henderson first fought in a 2006 bout in PRIDE with "Hendo" netting the judges' nod.

The five-round bout will headline the UFC's November 9 UFC Fight Night event in central Brazil's Goiania, Goiás.

More information on the event, including additional bouts, venue, ticket on-sale and US broadcast details will be available in coming weeks on UFC.com.
