On Friday, the UFC announced that Browne is stepping in for Ben Rothwell at UFC 203, and will take on Werdum. Rothwell had to pull out of the fight due to an injury.
As you may recall, Browne and Werdum battled back in 2014, and “Vai Cavalo” won the fight via UD. More recently, Werdum lost the heavyweight crown to Stipe Miocic, via KO, and Browne was taken out by Cain Velasquez.
So, it will be interesting to see how that fight plays out. Can Browne avenge that defeat? Or will Werdum outscore him again and get back in the win column.
UFC 203 will take place on September 10th in Cleveland, Ohio. In the headliner, Miocic will look to defend the heavyweight title versus Alistair Overeem.
