Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) heavyweight kingpin Cain Velasquez came face-to-face with interim titleholder Fabricio Werdum (again) at the UFC 188 media day earlier this week inside the Four Seasons hotel in Mexico City, Mexico, designed to promote their upcoming pay-per-view (PPV) main event on June 13, 2015.

For the record, they've already had three official staredowns and zero official fights, thanks to the pesky injury bug.

In addition, former Strikeforce lightweight champion Gilbert Melendez finally came face-to-face with ex-Bellator straphanger Eddie Alvarez, in what will be a grudge match several years in the making. Elsewhere on the card, Tecia Torres battles fellow TUF standout Angela Hill.

And no, that's not Alberto Del Rio at the 0:45 mark, but rather Augusto Montano, who collides with resilient Irish import Cathal Pendred in middleweight action.
