Vitor Belfort (pictured) added another highlight reel finish to his extensive resume, without the aid of TRT. So take that, haters…
Sure, he blasted a 45-year-old Dan Henderson who has been finished in his last four losses, but a win is a win.
Belfort took a 2-1 lead over Henderson following last night’s trilogy, avenging a decision defeat from 2003.
It didn’t take long for Belfort to wax Henderson. Following a head kick to the dome, Belfort swarmed him with a barrage of punches until referee Mario Yamasaki brought the assault to a halt.
The official stoppage came at 2:07 in the opening round.
There was some controversy that the stoppage may have been a tad early, but it seemed that the end was near even if Yamasaki would have stepped in later.
It was Belfort’s first win since being forced to quit TRT. He looks drastically different physically, doesn’t he?
UFC Fight Night 77 took place Saturday inside Ibirapuera Gymnasium in Sao Paulo, Brazil.
