Highlights! Vitor Belfort lands another head kick, finishes Dan Henderson fast ... again

HIGHLIGHTS! Thomas Almeida, Vitor Belfort Steal Sao Paulo Show With Killer KOs!

He did it again.

Vitor Belfort, who lit up the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Middleweight division in 2013 with three highlight-reel head-kick finishes over top contenders, won via yet another devastating head kick on Dan Henderson in the main event of UFC Fight Night 77 last night (Sat., Nov. 7, 2015) inside Ibirapuera Gymnasium in Sao Paulo, Brazil.

Both men came into the fight with one win in their respective records against one another and both wanted to end this trilogy in spectacular fashion.

The fight started tentatively, with Belfort and Henderson circling one another like caged animals waiting to strike. A few measuring leg kicks were all that seemed to be on offer.

And then, as suddenly and as brutally as most of the fights in the career of the "Phenom", the Brazilian landed yet another left high kick that connected with Henderson and caused the 45-year-old to buckle.

Belfort's legendary accuracy and pressure soon finished the job, swarming on the veteran American and finally landing what appeared to be the punch that put the lights out and forced referee Mario Yamasaki to step in and intervene.

True Revival Touch (TRT), indeed.
