This was his first fight after he was knocked out by Chandler in a matchup for the lightweight title vacated by current UFC fighter Will Brooks.
The elder of the “Pitbull Brothers” has won three of his last four, including a one-punch KO of Ryan Couture, and was actually due to face Derek Campos at Bellator 181 on July 14th.
Belfort is the man who kicked Michael Bisping in the head, causing the British champion to have a number of surgeries on his eye.
He is still a lethal striker but faces stiff competition from Mousasi.
Henderson (24-7) has been out of action since losing a title fight to Michael Chandler back in November 2016.
He later revealed that he’d spent his entire three-fight Bellator career competing with a torn ACL, MCL, and meniscus.
