A rematch over seven years in the making.

If the interview "Hendo" conducted with FOX Sports at UFC Fight Night 28: "Teixeira vs. Bader," was any indication of how the re-do will end up, mixed martial arts (MMA) fans can expect a striking war.

"I am excited to fight someone who is going to bang with me. Vitor has been around for a long time -- it seems like he has some kicks now, so I guess that's different from before. I am excited to fight him and beat his rear end."

The two originally squared off against each other at PRIDE 32, with the American scoring a unanimous decision victory. After the fight, Belfort tested positive for elevated levels of testosterone, which of course, explains why he hasn't returned to fight in Las Vegas since.
