The two legends of the sport met back in 2006 under the PRIDE banner. The bout was not what fans were hoping it would be, and Henderson would go on to pick up a unanimous decision victory. Belfort would test positive for elevated levels of testosterone after the fight as well.
Fast forward seven years and the two skilled fighters are still at the top of the MMA world.
The bout will be contested at 205 pounds. Belfort enters on a big two-fight win streak over top-five middleweight competition, but Henderson enters the bout dropping his previous two fights by decision to two of the best light heavyweights.
This is an interesting encounter. Here is your head-to-toe breakdown of the rematch.
