Dana White Confirms Fabricio Werdum vs. Travis Browne Is Main Event For UFC On FOX 11

The UFC previously announced Fabricio Werdum and Travis Browne for the first event in Disneyland Orlando, Florida this April, but never specified if it would be a main event. During todays UFC 169 media day, Dana White announced that Werdum/Browne will in fact be headlining UFC on Fox 11 in a five-round fight.

Marc Raimondi took to his twitter to announce the fight, heres the tweet:

“Dana White: Werdum-Browne is the main event of FOX card in Orlando.”

Werdum opted to take another fight instead of wait for champion Cain Velasquez to recover from shoulder surgery. He’s won his last 3 fights, including a submission win over Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira in Fortaleza, Brazil last June.
