On Saturday, Nov. 7, the UFC hosted UFC Fight Night 77: Belfort vs. Henderson 3 from the Ibirapuera Gymnasium in Sao Paulo, Brazil.

In the night’s main event, two legends of the sport locked horns for a third time as former UFC champion Vitor Belfort took on former Pride and Strikeforce titleholder Dan Henderson. The pair’s first meeting came at Pride 32 in 2006 with Henderson claiming a win on the scorecards. Their rematch came two years ago at UFC Fight Night 32 with Belfort exacting revenge with a violent, first-round knockout via head kick.

Belfort aimed to rebound from a first-round title defeat to Chris Weidman at UFC 187, while Henderson looked to build on his 28-second destruction of Tim Boetsch at UFC Fight Night 68 in June.

The 13-fight event kicked off Saturday with three preliminary card bouts streaming live on UFC Fight Pass at 6:30 p.m. ET. Four additional prelims followed on Fox Sports 1 at 8 p.m. ET, with the six-fight main card taking place at 10 p.m. ET, also on Fox Sports 1.
