Sources close to the fighters confirmed with MMAjunkie.com that each had agreed on the match up.
Belfort last competed in January at UFC 142, submitting Anthony Johnson in the opening round of their contest. Prior to that dominant display, he decimated Yoshihiro Akiyama with a vicious knockout at UFC 133.
Meanwhile, Belcher has displayed dominance of his own since returning from an eye injury that threatened his career. In his last four contests, he has earned stoppage victories, including in his latest outing against Rousimar Palhares.
