You can put UFC Fight Night 32 in the books, and you can put an exclamation point at the end of your entry. With six knockouts (and a submission to strikes), the card lacked nothing in the way of emphatic action, and that's saying nothing of the two (additional) submissions it produced.
Whereas one can argue which finish was best, the most meaningful finish is clearly Vitor Belfort's knockout over Dan Henderson. Not only does Belfort become the first man to conquer Hendo's legendary chin, he makes a statement as he closes in on a title shot.
