UFC Fabricio Werdum

It’s been 11 long months since Fabricio Werdum (pictured) upset Cain Velasquez to capture the UFC heavyweight crown. He’ll finally defend his hardware for the first time this Saturday when he battles Stipe Miocic at UFC 198.

The UFC stacked the card with plenty of big names for their return to Brazil. A pivotal middleweight clash between Vitor Belfort and Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza serves as the co-main event, while former 185-pound king Anderson Silva and Uriah Hall open for them.
