Dan Henderson’s decision to take this fight Saturday with Vitor Belfort will play an important role in his future.
The two meet in Brazil at UFC Fight NIght: Belfort vs. Henderson at light heavyweight.
While Belfort is considered the top contender at middleweight, Henderson will be making his last scheduled fight on his current UFC contract, according to ESPN’s Josh Gross.
The report states the two sides have decided to wait until after the fight to determine future talks.
Previously when Henderson’s UFC deal expired, he left the promotion and signed with Strikeforce.
