Seven years following their first meeting at Pride FC 32, Vitor Belfort and Dan Henderson will meet again this Saturday.
Belfort has knocked out top-10 middleweights in his past two fights, putting himself at the front of the line for a shot at the 185-pound championship. While waiting for a rematch between Chris Weidman and Anderson Silva to happen, Belfort was unwilling to cut weight, so UFC matchmakers interestingly paired him with a light heavyweight on a skid.
Henderson has gone to close decisions in his past two outings, but he lost on the scorecards against both Lyoto Machida and Rashad Evans. Despite his apparent decline at 43 years old, Henderson finds himself in another main event against a highly relevant opponent.
As this meeting of the MMA greats draws near, here is a look at how Belfort and Henderson match up against one another in all areas.
