Rockhold wasn’t wearing Strikeforce gold when he fought Belfort but he was definitely the organization’s champion.

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)
