Werdum vs. Browne to serve as UFC on Fox 11 main event

See also

According to an article Friday on ProMMAInsider.com, UFC on Fox 11 will feature a heavyweight title eliminator as its main event when Fabricio Werdum takes on the white hot Travis Browne.

UFC president Dana White announced the decision on Thursday during a media scrum. The fight had been previously announced, however, it had not been declared the five-round main event until yesterday.

The event will be the first time the UFC has traveled to Orlando, and also features an intriguing bout in the women's division as former title contenders Miesha Tate and Liz Carmouche square off. The fights will take place inside the Amway Center and the main card can be seen on Fox (duh).

Fabricio Werdum has won six of his last seven fights, having yet to lose since coming back over to the UFC. Last year, he avenged a previous defeat to Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira when he submitted him this past June at UFC on Fuel TV 10.

Travis Browne has lost only once in his 18 professional contests. Last year, he won three times, posting victories over Gabriel Gonzaga, Alistair Overeem and Josh Barnett. All three were by stoppage, with the victory over Barnett coming just last month at UFC 168.

For Browne, the rise to the top of the heavyweight division has come somewhat unexpectedly. A decided underdog against both Overeem and Barnett, he stopped both fighters to show he belongs with the division's elite.
