Jayne Kamin-Oncea-USA TODAY Spor

Check out all the info you need regarding UFC on FOX 11: "Browne vs. Werdum," which takes place TONIGHT (Sat., April 19, 2014) at Amway Center in Orlando, Florida. The main attractions feature a Heavyweight title eliminator bout between Travis Browne vs. Fabricio Werdum, as well as Miesha Tate vs. Liz Carmouche in the co-main event. That's just the top of a deep card that starts earlier on Fight Pass and FOX Sports 1, details for which are all mentioned below.

It's time for another edition of "Buzzfeed!," breaking down UFC on FOX 11: "Browne vs. Werdum," which takes place tonight (Sat., April 19, 2014) from Orlando, Florida.

Here is everything you need to know about the mixed martial arts (MMA) event that takes place later this evening in the "Sunshine State."

Who: Travis Browne vs. Fabricio Werdum
What: UFC on FOX 11
When: Sat., April 19, 2014
Where: Amway Center in Orlando, Florida
Why It Matters: FOX cards usually generate good exposure, but this one's a real doozy. The heavyweight main event will determine who faces Cain Velasquez a la playa at a later date, setting up a colossal UFC heavyweight championship fight when the promotion finally visits Mexico.

What's Hot: Apart from what was just mentioned, this main card is beyond fascinating, featuring four fights destined to entertain you. You've got the heavyweights, a women's bantamweight co-main event featuring Miesha Tate against Liz Carmouche, a lightweight barnburner pitting Donald Cerrone against Edson Barboza and a middleweight contest between Brad Tavares vs. Yoel Romero.

Hose me down.

What's Not: Since complains should be minimized in this sport, because let's face it, there's a lot to complain about, but after watching The Ultimate Fighter (TUF): "Nations" Finale, let's hope this isn't another marathon card.

Having 13 fights is cool and all, but be prepared t sacrifice eight hours of your Saturday if you plan on watching it from start to finish.

New Blood: There are a few fresh faces taking part in this event, featuring a handful of Bellator and Legacy FC veterans.

The night opens up with two heavyweight newcomers, as Derrick Lewis meets Jack May on "Fight Pass." Featherweight Mirsad Bektic takes on two-time Bellator fighter Chas Skelly on the online network, too, and the undefeated Ray Borg draws Dustin Ortiz in the "Fight Pass" featured fight.

Former Shooto combatant will have his hands full when he takes on Jordan Mein on the "prelims," Luke Zachrich makes his debut against Caio Magalhaes and rounding off the new employees, Alex White goes up against Estevan Payan.

Original Card vs. Actual Card: This card didn't take too much of a beating, since all the rearranged match ups are taking place on the "prelims."

The only fight that was completely scrapped was Amanda Nunes against Alexis Dufresne, since Dufresne suffered an injury and Nunes was going to face Sarah Kaufman at TUF: "Nations" Finale -- until she got injured, too.

Payan was supposed to meet Sean Soriano, but the latter suffered an injury setback and he was replaced by former WEC featherweight champion Mike Brown. Brown then got injured himself, so that's how Payan wound up against White.

Mein was supposed to duke it out against Santiago Ponzinibbio, but the latter was removed and replaced with Perpetuo.

Finally, Josh Samman was set for a bout against Magalhaes, but after Samman suffered a hamstring injury, Zachrich stepped up to the plate.

How The "Prelims" Look: Pretty damn good.

The main attraction sees Rafael dos Anjos against Khabib Nurmagomedov in a bout that could have lightweight title implications left hanging in the balance.

Also, former UFC welterweight title challenger Thiago Alves makes his long-awaited return against Seth Baczynski in the co-main event.

You're also getting a heated lightweight scrap between Jorge Masvidal against Pat Healy.

Who Needs A Win Badly: Tate is currently 1-3 in her past four fights, and if she can't get the job done against Carmouche, she'll find herself on a three-fight losing streak. The United States Army veteran is 1-2, so she feels a little less weight on her shoulders coming into Saturday night.

Alves should be feeling the pressure as well, since he's only won two fights out of his past six contests.

Healy has to beat Masvidal, plain and simple. His monstrous win over Jim Miller at UFC 159 was overturned because he tested positive for doobies, and afterwards he lost two-straight -- capping off an unfortunate 2013 for "Bam Bam."

Payan needs to win also, since he's lost his two latest fights, including a knockout loss at the hands of Robbie Peralta at UFC 168.

Interest Level: 9/10

I'm not giving this a nine based on the popularity or media attention this event has generated, but more so because it's going to be a good night of solid fights. Say what you will about the "Fight Pass" portion, but the FOX Sports 1 broadcast is going to kick some serious ass and the main card is perfectly built.

If you're a fight fan, which you definitely are since you're reading one of the best blogs in SB Nation history, don't mess around and take your mister or missus to go see Draft Day or something stupid like that.

Order in some Szechuan, get fat and lazy and then come back Easter morning for your post-fight recap fix.
