UFC Fight Night 32 bout is last one on Dan Henderson's contract

USA TODAY Sports

Dan Henderson's UFC contract will expire after his UFC Fight Night 32 bout with Vitor Belfort.

UFC light heavyweight Dan Henderson is headlining UFC Fight Night 32 this weekend in a rematch against Vitor Belfort, and the stakes are even higher than normal for him. It would be important either way considering Hendo has lost his last two bouts. But according to Josh Gross of ESPN, his contract also expires after this fight:

Henderson (29-10) hasn't had the best luck since his epic win over Mauricio "Shogun" Rua in late 2011. He was scheduled to fight Jon Jones for the light heavyweight title at UFC 151, but he got injured and had to pull out, which led to some issues with the promotion. He then dropped two split decisions in a row to Lyoto Machida and Rashad Evans.

For the last fight of his contract, he's in a bit of a pickle - if he loses, it'll be three in a row. If he beats Belfort again (he decisioned him back in 2006 in Pride), many will say he just beat a middleweight. Even though he's a natural middleweight himself, I can't see anything short of a knockout win earning him the same contract he got when he came back from Strikeforce.
