Vitor Belfort has his next fight, as he is set to battle Dan Henderson in the main event of UFC Fight Night: Belfort vs Henderson. The November 9th, 2013 card will be hosted by the Goiania Arena in Goiania, Brazil.

Vitor Belfort reportedly turned down multiple fights before finally deciding that he would fight Dan Henderson. Lyoto Machida was reportedly offered to Belfort, but Vitor elected to turn that fight down, claiming that he was waiting for a shot at the title.

UFC President Dana White seemed to be growing increasingly agitated with Belfort, claiming that the Brazilian fight was doing his own match-making. Well, after seemingly being content to hold out for a title shot (either Middleweight or Light Heavyweight), Belfort has elected to take a fight against Dan Henderson.

--

This won't be the first time that Henderson and Belfort have fought. Henderson won a unanimous decision victory over Vitor Belfort at PRIDE 32 back in October 21th, 2006.

Both fighters are in the same situation - both are trying to fight their way back into one last title fight before they decide to step away from the fight game. Both have won multiple titles. Both are legends of the fight game.

Who will win in November?
