San Francisco, CA– Dan Henderson (29-11, 6-5 UFC) had beaten Vitor Belfort in Japan during a Pride Fighting Championships in 2006. On Saturday night in a battle of Testosterone Replacement Therapy patients, Belfort prevailed with KO kick at :77 seconds of the very first round in UFC Fight Night 32 emanating from Goiania, Brazil. This was Belfort’s third straight KO kick victory with Luke Rockhold (pictured) and Michael Bisping preceding Hendo. Belofort (24-10, 13-6 UFC) will probably get the winner of the UFC 185 lb. title scrap between current champ Chris Weidman and ex-kingpin Anderson Silva, set for UFC 168 on December 28.
