UFC on FOX 11: Travis Browne vs Fabricio Werdum results

According to an April 18 post from Bleacher Report, the results are in from the UFC on FOX 11 card that went down at the Amway Center in Orlando. It didn't take long for UFC on FOX 11 to have a knockout finish, as Derrick Lewis needed less than one full round to defeat Jack May in the first fight of the night.

Lewis quickly shot in for a takedown and dropped a series of punches to May's face, before the fight was called to a halt at the 4:23 mark of the opening frame. The UFC on FOX 11 preliminary card then turned to a bout between Mirsad Bektic and Chas Skelly. Bektic was hit by a pair of illegal knees in the opening frame, and he was wobbly heading back to his corner.

It was a close back-and-forth fight, but Bektic defeated Skelly via majority decision. Skelly's illegal knees likely cost him the fight. No word yet when Skelly will return to action. The UFC Fight Pass portion of the UFC on Fox 11 card also featured a key tilt between Dustin Ortiz and Ray Borg.

The fight everyone is looking forward to on the UFC on FOX 11 main card is the tilt between Travis Browne (15-1-1 MMA, 6-1-1 UFC) and Fabricio Werdum (17-5-1 MMA, 5-2 UFC). Browne and Werdum will be fighting for a chance to take on UFC heavyweight champ Cain Velasquez, in a bout that will likely occur later this year.

Browne, 31, has won six of his last seven UFC fights, including knockout finishes of Josh Barnett, Gabriel Gonzaga and others. As for Werdum, he's a submission ace who has tapped out heavyweight greats such as Fedor Emelianenko and Antônio Rodrigo Nogueira.

Werdum has also won six of his last seven, including three-straight victories against high-quality opponents. It's clear that both Werdum and Browne are legit heavyweight contenders, so their clash at UFC on FOX 11 will be interesting to watch.

The UFC on FOX 11 co-main is also interesting, as it pits bantamweight contenders Liz Carmouche (9-4 MMA, 1-2 UFC) and Miesha Tate (13-5 MMA, 0-2 UFC) against each other. Tate is still looking for his first win under the UFC banner, while Carmouche is also looking to rebound from a loss.

Tate vs Carmouche is not a title eliminator scrap, but it will determine who will stay in the mix in the UFC's upper echelon of 135-pound contenders. Tate and Carmouche both already got their shot at UFC champ Ronda Rousey, so they may be a couple victories away from another crack at her.

Also on the UFC on FOX 11 main card, Edson Barboza (13-1 MMA, 7-1 UFC) and Donald Cerrone (22-6 MMA, 9-3 UFC) will square off to determine who will climb the ranks in the UFC's 155-pound division. Cerrone is always exciting, and Barboza also rarely puts in boring performances.
