The Ultimate Fighting Championship's (UFC) tenth offering on FUEL TV, UFC on FUEL TV 10: "Nogueira vs. Werdum," airs live and free June 8, 2013, on FUEL TV in the United States and Rogers Sportsnet in Canada.
The event is headlined by a heavyweight rematch between longtime mixed martial arts (MMA) veterans Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira and Fabricio Werdum, who will finally fight after spending months as opposing coaches on The Ultimate Fighter (TUF): Brazil 2.
The five-round heavyweight main event will be a rematch from 2006 Pride bout which Nogueira won handily by unanimous decision. "Minotauro" was the much more experience MMA fighter at the time, but Werdum insists he has caught up to and even surpassed the former interim UFC champion in terms of skills since the first meeting.
Also scheduled for the card is a light heavyweight match up between Thiago Silva and Rafael Cavalcante, a middleweight contest of Daniel Sarafian vs. Eddie Mendez and in one of the most interesting match ups on the card, Erick Silva returns to the cage against Jason High in welterweight action.
After the recent UFC 160 event last night (May 25, 2013) in Las Vegas, UFC play-by-play man Joe Rogan and color commentator Mike Goldberg broke down the heavyweight contest that is set to serve as the main event from Paulo Sarasate Arena in Fortaleza, Brazil.
