Vitor Belfort vs. Dan Henderson 2 agreed for UFC Fight Night 32 in Brazil

USA TODAY Sports

Former champions Vitor Belfort and Dan Henderson are likely to rematch in Brazil this November.

After weeks of negotiations, where Dana White even called him out for "being his own matchmaker", it looks like Vitor Belfort finally has an opponent planned. According to MMA Fighting and UFC Tonight's Ariel Helwani, The Phenom will have a rematch against fellow MMA legend in Dan Henderson, and they will likely fight at UFC Fight Night 32:

Helwani goes on to say that both fighters have agreed to the contest, although the weight class hasn't been finalized as of yet. Both men have competed from middleweight up to heavyweight throughout their long careers, but if Belfort doesn't budge on his stance on only having title fights at middleweight, they may decide to do this at 205.

The duo first met at PRIDE 32 back in 2006, with Henderson taking it by unanimous decision.

Both men have had impressive resurgences late in their career (which may or may not be due to their TRT prescriptions), but in 2013, their careers have been on slightly different trajectories. The 42-year-old Hendo went on a tear a few fights back but is now coming off back to back decision losses at light heavyweight, the surging 36-year-old in Belfort on the other hand, has recently landed two spectacular knock out wins in a row as a middleweight.
