Earlier this year, in the main event of UFC 198, Stipe Miocic knocked out Fabricio Werdum to capture the UFC heavyweight title. This Saturday, in the main event of UFC 203, Miocic will defend that title against Alistair Overeem, while Werdum will attempt to get back on track opposite Travis Browne in the evening’s co-main event.
In preparation for Werdum’s comeback bout, the UFC has released video of the Brazilian’s title-winning defeat of Cain Velasquez, which occurred in the main even of UFC 188 back in June of 2015.
Werdum and Browne first met at UFC on FOX 11 in April of 2014, with ‘Via Cavalo’ emerging victorious via unanimous decision.
‘Hapa’ is also coming off a loss, as he was starched by former UFC heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez at UFC 200 in Las Vegas this past July.
Do you think the 39-year-old Werdum can defeat Browne for a second time this Saturday, or is the former champion’s time at the top coming to an end? Sound off, PENN nation!
