Vitor Belfort was not aware of veteran Dan Henderson, knocked out the U.S. in the main event of UFC Fight Night 32 and avenged their defeat to rivals in 2006. With the triumph, the Brazilian won the right to compete in the middleweight belt against the winner of the fight between Chris Weidman and Anderson, who meet in December. And, in case of triumph of Anderson, the duel between the Brazilians may be the biggest in the history of Ultimate.
The president of the franchise, Dana White revealed after the event in Goiânia, in the early hours of Sunday (10) that a possible fight between Anderson Silva and Vitor Belfort could be held in Brazil, and for the first time ever in a football stadium .
"The middleweight division is very strong, there are many possibilities. Imagine if we Anderson vs. Vitor here in a football stadium? Weidman and Anderson will clash at UFC 168 and will be our biggest event of all time. The winner will face Vitor Belfort unless something crazy happens and someone get hurt, "said White, who spared no praise for Belfort due to its performance.
"Great night for Vitor. He did something no one had done before in 39 fights. Dan Henderson knocked out. He is a better fighter than he was as a young man, is more composed than when young, better mentally. I am enraptured by his performance today. We have to see how it goes Weidman vs. Anderson, but he is the next ..., "White added.
