Vitor Belfort and Dan Henderson will be face to face in the main event of UFC Fight Night 77, but both men are on completely different spectrums coming into this fight.
Belfort is coming off a loss to Chris Weidman, which snapped his three-fight winning streak. On the other hand, Henderson is coming off a knockout victory over Tim Boetsch at UFC Fight Night 68, which broke his two-fight losing streak.
Now, the two will fight again just two years later at UFC Fight Night 77.
“I’m happy, cheerful, happy, super motivated, it will be a great fight,” Belfort told Combate.com. Every fight is different. Dan Henderson is a very predictable fighter, knows how to do well those things. I have to be prepared for it and enjoy. We are two legends who are in this sport for years. I’m glad to face a guy of his level.”
The two originally fought at UFC Fight Night 32, which Belfort won by first-round knockout.
Belfort commented about his devastating loss to Chris Weidman at UFC 187 for the middleweight championship.
“I had a good time, but could not take it easy, I tried to play very hard blows at the wrong time. I did not know to use the experience. Even received a funny text message from Chael Sonnen, saying the fight was a draw because I won over and Weidman won below. It was his night, which took all the credit. I felt it was my night, I gave everything at the wrong time and in addition to the shoulder injury he had any merit. We have to forget the things that are behind and move on.”
UFC Fight Night 77 takes place on November 7th from Sao Paulo, Brazil.
