01:48 PM ET 08.21 | While UFC middleweight contender Vitor Belfort is busy turning down opponents that the UFC offers, it looks like the top promotion in the world has shifted their attention to a different opponent for "The Phenom" that would bring fans back to the glory days of PRIDE. On Tuesday's edition of UFC Tonight, it was revealed that the UFC wants to book a matchup between Belfort (23-10) and Dan Henderson (29-10) for a November event in Brazil. The event would take place on Nov. 9 and likely serve as UFC Fight Night 32. Belfort and Henderson have reportedly verbally agreed to the match up, but there is still some discussion on whether the bout would take place at middleweight, light heavyweight or catch weight.
