The UFC has announced its line-up for next month’s UFC Fight Night 32: Belfort vs. Henderson. The card will take place November 9 at Goiania Arena in Goiania, Goias, Brazil.
The main card will be headlined by a light heavyweight fight featuring two top-ranked veterans of the sport, Vitor Belfort and Dan Henderson. Belfort (23-10) is coming off two back-to-back head kick KO’s against Michael Bisping and Luke Rockhold. Henderson (29-10), on the other hand, is coming into this fight after losing his last two fights, both by split decision.
That bout will be just one of 10 that features a Brazilian fighter facing a non-Brazilian fighter. In all UFC events held in Brazil, the local fighters hold an overall record of 59-20 – a record that fighters like Dan Henderson and Jeremy Stephens will be looking to undermine, as both of them are set to face native Brazilians.
The main card will begin at 8pm/5pm ETPT, airing on FOX Sports 1 following a preliminary card that streams online right here on BJPENN.COM beginning at 5:15pm/2:15pm ETPT.
The full card is as follows:
-Godofredo Pepey vs. Sam Sicilia
