Bisping did his best to get in Belfort’s head leading up to their clash for top contendership, spewing a constant stream of smack regarding the Brazilian’s heart and decision to use TRT. The talk meant little come showtime with Belfort rocking Bisping early. “The Count” survived until the second round but couldn’t withstand Belfort’s power for much longer, succumbing to strikes before the frame’s midway point.
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)
