A decade ago Herring was a game heavyweight on a four-fight winning streak when he ran into Belfort. Though a submission artist with heavy hands, “The Texas Crazyhorse” couldn’t put Belfort away and instead ate numerous shots en route to a decision loss. The victory would be Belfort’s last in PRIDE until 2006 when he returned after a stint in the UFC and abroad.
36-year old icon Vitor Belfort has been blasting opponents into orbit for more than fifteen years. The heavy-handed Brazilian’s latest example of sublime striking came this weekend at UFC Fight Night 32 where Belfort accomplished the previously unthinkable by stopping Dan Henderson with strikes. So where did the victory over “Hendo” stack up on Belfort’s all-time list of wins? (Photos by USA Today Sports Images)
