If you like pivotal, heavyweight scraps, then chances are you’re going to be tuning into UFC 203 on September 10th.
Werdum (20-6-1) had his reign as heavyweight champ ended by Miocic at UFC 198 on May 14th, as the latter took him out in the opening round with a right hook. The bout marked the first time Werdum had fought since he submitted Cain Velasquez last summer to become champ. “Vai Cavalo” is 4-1 in his last 5 bouts.
Rothwell (36-10) is also coming off a defeat, as former champ Junior dos Santos outscored him for the UD win in April. The heavy handed fighter is also 4-1 in his last 5 contests.
So, that’s an interesting addition to UFC 203. The victor will remain right in the thick of the title shot mix.
No other fights have been announced yet for the September 10th event.
