Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is expected to return to Brazil this June, featuring a 185-pound title fight (and highly-anticipated rematch) of Anderson Silva vs. Chael Sonnen as its main event.
In fact, prior to his close unanimous decision loss in a three round stinker against Alistair Overeem, "Vai Cavalo" was able to win three straight, ending the mystique of Fedor Emelianenko and stepping on the big foot of Antonio Silva.
But will he be handcuffed by Johnny Law in front of a hometown crowd?
Russow (15-1) is as erratic as he is sporadic. Despite averaging just one fight per year since 2008, the full time police officer keeps on winning, driving his UFC record to a perfect 4-0 after disposing of "Viking" grappler Jon Olav Einemo at UFC on FOX 2 earlier this year.
Against Werdum, it should be noted that his only professional loss has come by way of submission.
Details are still sketchy on exactly when and where the UFC will hold its next event in Brazil, as logistical issues in Sao Paulo have kept the world's largest fight promotion from committing to a firm date.
