Cain Velasquez vs. Fabricio Werdum staredown pic from UFC press conference in Mexico City

Cain Velasquez and Fabricio Werdum squared off in Mexico City earlier today (April 29, 2014) at the UFC press conference announcing plans for The Ultimate Fighter (TUF): "Latin America" as well as UFC 180 in November. Check it out below!

It's finally set.

Cain Velasquez and Fabricio Werdum have been announced as coaches for the upcoming season of The Ultimate Fighter (TUF): "Latin America," which begins filming on May 12, 2014. The two heavyweights have not only been confirmed as coaches, but they will duke it out in the championship main event of UFC 180 on Nov. 15.

The champion is still recovering from surgery from the injuries he sustained in his last fight against Junior dos Santos at UFC 166. Werdum defeated Travis Browne at UFC on FOX 11 a few weeks back and became the number one contender to Velasquez's title.

The news was announced earlier today at the promotion's press conference (watch it here) and the champion, as well as the challenger, engaged in their first staredown.
