Vitor Belfort will continue his Brazilian tour on Saturday, when he'll engage in a rematch with Dan Henderson.
This will be Belfort's third straight fight in his home country. With knockout wins in his past two outings, he has become the top contender in the middleweight division behind former champion Anderson Silva. If he beats Henderson at UFC Fight Night 32, Belfort will most likely meet the winner of an upcoming title fight between Silva and champion Chris Weidman.
A loser of his past two fights, Henderson needs a win on Saturday to prove he can still be a contender at 43 years old. Henderson defeated Belfort in the first meeting between the veterans, but that bout occurred years ago under the long-gone Pride FC banner.
In addition the 205-pound main event, a bout between Daniel Sarafian and Cezar Ferreira will determine who really should have won TUF: Brazil 1. Sarafian was supposed to meet Ferreira in the season's middleweight finals, but an injury ruined his chances to win the competition.
At the conclusion of UFC Fight Night 32, several fighters will join UFC president Dana White for a post-fight press conference, which can be viewed live on the above video player.
