UFC Fight Night 32 results: Vitor Belfort knocks out Dan Henderson

Chris Trotman

Well, that was something. And it's a first: Dan Henderson stopped via strikes.

Vitor Belfort and Dan Henderson met once before, all the way back in 2006 before PRIDE shut its doors. That bout ended with the latter winning a decision in a grueling 15-minute affair. Now, seven years later, the two met again at tonight's (Sat., Nov. 9, 2013) UFC Fight Night 32 event in Goiania, Brazil, with a potential title shot -- at light heavyweight or middleweight -- up in the air.

Congratulations to "The Phenom".

That's because Belfort, who has been on an incredibly impressive run as of late, scored himself yet another big knockout victory, this one a first round destruction that included a ridiculously well aimed uppercut, a heavy blitz of punches thrown at a blistering pace, and another perfectly placed head kick that finished the job.

This marks the first time in his career that Henderson, who has fought 39 times in mixed martial arts, has been stopped via strikes.

As for Belfort, his only losses since his defeat at "Hendo's" hands back in 2006 have come in title shots against Anderson Silva (middleweight) and Jon Jones (light heavyweight).

Is it time to give him another crack at either championship?
