Former UFC champion Vitor Belfort faced former Strikeforce champion Luke Rockhold in the night’s main event. Belfort continued his career resurgence, knocking Rockhold out with a stunning heel kick to the head at 2:32 of the first round.

The event was the second of at least four scheduled for Brazil in 2013. It also marked the second time that Belfort has headlined a UFC on FX card in his home country this year.

The promotion returns to Rio de Janeiro on Aug. 3 for UFC 163, which features featherweight champion Jose Aldo putting his belt on the line against Anthony Pettis, who is making his 145-pound debut.
