If you're a fan of violence inside the octagon, "UFC Fight Night 32: Belfort vs. Henderson 2" on Saturday night from Brazil's Goiania Arena was the card for you. The memorable event featured nine knockout or submission finishes in 11 fights, which is just one finish shy of the single-event record held by UFC Fight Night 13 and UFC on FUEL TV 10. While stoppages were a common theme throughout the evening, Vitor Belfort stole the show, as he knocked out Dan Henderson with a dramatic first-round head kick in the main event.
