– UFC President Dana White confirmed the news while speaking to reporters in New York on Thursday.
The heavyweight fight is expected to serve as a No. 1 contender fight, with the winner going on to meet UFC heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez, who is currently recovering from shoulder surgery.
Travis Browne (16-1-1) takes on Fabricio Werdum(17-5-1) on April 19, 2014.
Werdum who is UFC’s No. 2 ranked heavyweight, fought just once in 2013. He beat Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira with a second-round armbar last June.
Travis Browne has been on a rampage and no i am not talking about “Rampage” Jackson. He has scoring first-round knockouts of Gabriel Gonzaga, Alistair Overeem and Josh Barnett.
UFC on FOX 11 is scheduled to be held at the Amway Center in Orlando, FL. The only other fight is women’s bantamweight clash between Miesha Tate and Liz Carmouche.
– The Ultimate Fighter Nations is not doing well in the ratings.
It airs on Wednesday night’s on Fox sports 1 with Canadians and Australians are the Country’s squaring off this season.
Patrick Côté is team Canada’s head coach and Kyle Noke is team Australia head coach.
Jan. 15 debut episode did 371,000 viewers on Fox Sports 1 and the second episode on Jan. 22 fell to 253,000.
Compared to Ronda Rousey vs. Miesha Tate season that did 762,000 and 870,000 on their first episodes. This is huge drop off and with the coaches that are there, do you really wonder why. There has been a decrease in viewership’s, but I do not think the UFC is worried about it.
