With just over a month until UFC 203, many were wondering which heavyweight would step in on short notice to fight the former champ, who is looking to return to the win column following his UFC 198 loss to Stipe Miocic.

According to MMAJunkie, the UFC has selected #7 heavyweight Travis Browne as a replacement opponent for Werdum, setting up a rematch of their 2014 scrap that saw Werdum earn a title shot against Cain Velasquez.

Browne will be entering the bout on a loss after being KOd by Cain Velasquez on the main card of UFC 200 last month.
