Vitor Belfort: What Dana White expects of me is my best

Vitor Belfort understands he has to win at UFC Fight Night 32 when he faces Dan Henderson in the main event on Fox Sports 1.

Vitor Belfort looks jacked headed into his UFC Fight Night 32 bout against Dan Henderson at the Goiania Arena in Goiania, Brazil on Saturday (Nov. 9, 2013) night on Fox Sports 1. The bout will be contested in the Ultimate Fighting Championship's (UFC) light heavyweight division.

This is not the first time that Belfort and Henderson have met. Back in 2006, Henderson won a very one sided unanimous decision at PRIDE 32. Belfort subsequently failed his post-fight drug test when there were traces of 4-hydroxytestosterone found in his urine sample.

However, things have changed since that first bout. Henderson has competed mostly in the light heavyweight division and has become more and more reliant on landing that one big fight ending punch. In fact, he's all but abandoned his wrestling game.

Befort has found a way to reinvent himself in his latest UFC run as one of the most dynamic strikers in the middleweight division.

After the UFC Fight Night 32 weigh ins, Belfort spoke with Fox Sports' Heidi Androl about his bout with Henderson and his thoughts on UFC President Dana White's comments that if Belfort loses, he won't be getting at shot at the UFC middleweight title.
