UFC on FUEL TV 10: Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira vs Fabrico Werdum full first fight video replay online

ZUFFA is going to hype up UFC on FUEL TV 10 and help out some of you noobs at the same time, by replaying the full fight video from PRIDE: "Critical Countdown Absolute," featuring Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira's unanimous decision win over Fabricio Werdum from 2006.

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is giving Fabricio Werdum a chance to erase some bad memories at this weekend's UFC on FUEL TV 10 event, scheduled for Sat., June 8, 2013 from Ginasio Paulo Sarasate in Fortaleza, Ceara, Brazil.

That's where "Vai Cavalo" will rematch Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira.

The pair first met as heavyweights in the PRIDE 2006 Open Weight Grand Prix, as part of "Critical Countdown Absolute," which took place on July 1, 2006 at Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan. "Big Nog" was able to secure a convincing unanimous decision over his fellow countryman after three rounds of action.

But a lot has changed since then.

That's something Werdum wants to prove after wrapping up coaching duties opposite "Minotauro" on The Ultimate Fighter (TUF): "Brazil" 2, which recently produced two welterweight finalists for this weekend's big shebang south of the equator.

Coming into their rematch, Nogueira (34-7) has been consistently inconsistent, racking up alternate wins/losses since strangling Tim Sylvia back in 2008. His record since outpointing "Vai Cavalo" is 6-4. Werdum (16-5), by comparison, is 8-3 since they last met and the winner of two straight.

This one could come down to who wants it more.
