Dan Henderson beat Vitor Belfort via Unanimous Decision at Pride 32 back in 2006. At UFC Fight Night 32 in Goiania, Brazil, on Nov. 9 Belfort gets the opportunity to even the score, and he says he plans to beat Hendo for all five rounds of the headliner, which will be contested at light heavyweight.

Belfort appears to have the momentum to give it his very best shot. Since losing to Hendo in Ocotber of 2006, Belfort has lost only to world champions Anderson Silva and Jon Jones. Hendo is on a two fight losing streak, to Rashad Evans and Lyoto Machida.

"It’s a rematch, so it won’t taste differently," said Belfort recently. "It gives me more motivation. He’s a tough fighter, but I’ll be ready to dominate him for five rounds."

"That’s the type of fight that the fans will enjoy. 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."

"My division is the 185 pounds, absolutely. I’m ranked there, but the Dan Henderson fight came in a good moment. He’s a fighter well ranked at 205, who has a fantastic history. But I’m not thinking about anything yet. My next mountain is Dan Henderson and that’s the mountain I want to climb. Dana White decides that. There’s a ranking, but I’m not worried about that. I’m only worried about beating Dan Henderson. The more victories I get, the highest I get."

Both gas after 2-3 rounds if the pace is solid. This will be an awesome fight m, but I hope it is an action packed finish, rather than a 5 round affair with it flickering out.

However Hendo gave us the 5 round Rua match which was the best MMA fight ever, so what the hell do I know Phone Post 3.0

Vitor has about 2 rounds to finish somebody who has never been finished before.

Fedor hit Hendo with his best and Dan laughed it off and out him away, but Belfort thinks he can do it? Phone Post 3.0

I'm not sure that Vitor will burn out against a guy like Dan. Dan fights at a very measured pace...you really have to push the pace to gas Belfort. Don't be surprised to see Vitor looking refresher in the later rounds... Phone Post 3.0

True but one has been caught using steroids before, and was a monster when he was younger obviously on the gas, and the other one has looked the exact same through out his whole career and has never been popped.  

Lol at exactly the same. He started koing everyone on trt. He fucked up rua early but they are almost equally hard to Finnish. Machida is hard to catch for anyone and he was off trt for the hashad fight....hmmmm Phone Post 3.0

In the past few fights Hendo gave up the TRT didn't he? Is he back on it for this fight then since ViTRTor is definitely and Brazil will allow it?

In for Hendo stopping the Vitor/Cheezits/TRT train.

That's why they used to call him Dan "Hollywood" Henderson. The guy is so incredible at acting, even when in the middle of a fight! He's willing to fall on his back to fool his opponent. Not even Anderson has played possum that bad. Phone Post

He wasn't allowed to take it against Rashad. He's back on it for Vitor, iirc. Phone Post

Fuck ya he did. MANY people thought Fedor would be the first to knock Hendo out, soooo many people that Hendo starting to think Fedor could knock him out. Then once Hendo got in there and got clipped, he realized Fedor had power, but nothing more than what he had been hit with in the past.

So after Fedor clipped him, Hendo laughed it of and played possum, went down, acted hurt, Fedor carelessly rushed in and then Hendo struck and viciously finished Fedor.
