It was already announced that Travis Browne and Fabricio Werdum will meet in a heavyweight title eliminator fight at UFC on FOX 11 and the bout is now officially the main event of the fight card.
UFC President Dana White told the attending media at the UFC 169 Media Day that the heavyweight bout will headline the April 19th card.
UFC on FOX 11 will come from the Amway Center in Orlando, Florida and tickets for the event are scheduled to go on sale in two weeks.
Browne (16-1-1) is currently on a three fight winning streak and all three wins have come by knockout in the first round. He has won the knockout of the night bonus in all of those fights and defeated Josh Barnett in sixty seconds at last month’s UFC 168.
Werdum (17-5-1) has also won three fights in a row since returning to the UFC in 2012. His last two wins have come by stoppage and his most recent victory came at UFC on FUEL TV 10 as he submitted Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira.
The only other fight that has been announced for the UFC on FOX 11 card is a women’s bantamweight bout as Miesha Tate will look to snap a two fight losing streak as she meets Liz Carmouche.
The UFC will be announcing more information on this fight card in the coming weeks, including on sale ticket information.
