The replay before the round started showed Werdum had hurt Browne and, if nothing else, had worn him down. He opened this round firing leg kicks, one of which landed near the jewels.
The two started exchanging punches and kicks, including Browne throwing high and slapping against Fabricio's arm. It was well defended but still knocked the Brazilian off center.
Werdum then decided to shoot in and, for the second time in the fight, earned a takedown. From there, he worked to pass and it wasn't long until he was in side control.
Browne, quite frankly, looked lost on his back against one of the best heavyweight submission fighters in history.
Amazingly enough, though, he escaped and got back to his feet. He looked utterly exhausted, however, and his punches appeared to lack the same snap as the first round. Werdum eased up, presumably to allow Browne to wear himself out even more with the punches he was throwing.
The round ended with Werdum landing a knee to the body.
