Vitor Belfort is looking to earn a title shot in the middleweight division, but he may do so with a win in a light heavyweight bout against an opponent, Dan Henderson, who has lost two in a row.
Having knocked out Top 10 middleweights in his past two outings, Belfort has already separated himself from the rest of the 185-pound contenders not named Anderson Silva. In doing so, the Brazilian decided he was no longer willing to cut weight while waiting for his opportunity to fight for the middleweight championship.
So, at UFC Fight Night 32, Belfort will return to the 205-pound division for a bout with Dan Henderson. Having lost two in a row, Henderson may be considering a drop down to 185 pounds. This matchup is his way of testing that division's waters without having to hit the sauna.
As this bout between two MMA greats approaches, Bleacher Report's own Riley Kontek, Craig Amos, Scott Harris, James MacDonald and Sean Smith have teamed up once again to provide their predictions for every bout on the UFC Fight Night 32 main card.
