The main event at UFC on FUEL TV 10 was a heavyweight clash between mixed martial arts legend Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira and No. 3 ranked Fabricio Werdum. It was a rematch of a bout long ago in PRIDE, and Werdum was looking to redeem himself against his mentor. After taking losing the battle on the feet despite a speed advantage, Werdum decided to take the fight to the mat where he was able to use his speed and knowledge of Nogueira’s ground game to outsmart the MMA vet and earn the second-round submission.
With the win, many believe that Werdum has done enough to earn a shot at the winner of Cain Velasquez vs. Junior Dos Santos for the UFC heavyweight title.
