RIO DE JANEIRO -- Vitor Belfort and Dan Henderson will fight for a third time in November.

Henderson made the announcement on Twitter. The middleweights will headline the upcoming UFC Fight Night card in Sao Paulo, Brazil, on Nov. 7. Combate first reported the match-up.

Belfort and Henderson fought for the first time in 2006, when the American came out victorious via decision, but the Brazilian got his revenge in 2013, scoring a first-round knockout in Brazil.

"The Phenom" enters the bout coming off a first-round loss to middleweight champion Chris Weidman, while "Hendo" looks for his second straight victory following a devastating win over Tim Boetsch.
