Brazilian submission wizard, Fabricio Werdum will make his octagon return when he faces “Ultimate Fighter” season ten winner, Roy Nelson at UFC 143 in Las Vegas, Nevada on February 4th, 2012.
Werdum hasn’t been seen since his disappointing three round decision loss to Alistair Overeem back in June in the quarter finals of the Strikeforce heavyweight grand-prix. Prior to that he jumped back in the rankings big time submitting the formerly ranked number one fighter, Fedor Emelianenko.
Nelson got his self back on track with a third round TKO win over Mirko Cro Cop. Prior to that he lost back-to-back fights to Junior dos Santos and Frank Mir.
