UFC Dan Henderson

Two UFC events in four days? Yes, please! After taking an 11-day hiatus, the Octagon comes storming back with a pair of freebie fight cards.

The UFC’s Facebook page will handle all of the preliminary bouts, while Fox Sports 1 broadcasts both main cards.

The action kicks off Wednesday when the UFC hosts a show for our troops at Fort Campbell, Kentucky. Former military hero Tim Kennedy battles Rafael Natal in the show’s featured attraction.

The UFC will then take their talents back to Brazil for Saturday’s event inside Goiania Arena in Goiania. A thrilling shootout between Dan Henderson (pictured) and Vitor Belfort headlines that card.

Of course, both of these events will be used to heavily promote UFC 167 on November 16 when reigning welterweight king Georges St-Pierre defends his throne against Johny Hendricks.
