Back in February, Cain Velasquez and Fabricio Werdum were slated to have a highly anticipated rematch for the UFC heavyweight championship at UFC 196. Ultimately, both men were forced to withdraw from the bout with injuries, and the event became ‘UFC FN: Hendricks vs. Thompson’.

Now, Fabricio Werdum is slated to fight Stipe Miocic in the main event of UFC 198 on May 14th in Brazil, while Velasquez will fight Travis Browne at UFC 200 in a pivotal heavyweight clash.

In the video above, you can see Velasquez discussing the back injury which forced him out of UFC 196.
