Werdum vs. Russow Target For June Brazil Show

March 9, 2012 12:53 pm by Pedro Carrasco

A heavyweight fight between top contender Fabricio Werdum and top prospect, Mike Russow is reportedly in the works for the UFC’s return trip to Brazil in June.

The Brazilian card is yet to be announced or finalized and the date/ venue is expected to be announced shortly. In the headlining spot is expected to be a middleweight title fight between Anderson Silva and Chael Sonnen.

Werdum blasted back on the UFC scene with his welcome matchup against Roy “Big Country” Nelson last month at UFC 143. Since 2008 the Brazilian Jiu Jitsu wizard has only lost at the hands of champion Junior dos Santos and number one contender Alistair Overeem.

Facing the Brazilian will be Mike Russow. Russow last saw action during January’s UFC on FOX show when he took out John-Olav Einemo via unanimous decision. The Chicago based police officer only has one professional loss and it came all the way back in 2007 against Sergei Kharitonov at PRIDE 33.
