After Fabricio Werdum continued to roll through the UFC heavyweight division with his latest knockout victory at UFC 168, he is on a collision course with Fabricio Werdum to determine the No. 1 contender for Cain Velasquez’s title.

Velasquez is currently on the sidelines until late 2014, so the UFC will have the top contenders battle it out to make sure their is a clear cut challenger upon the champion’s return.

With a Werdum vs. Browne match looming, the Brazilian says that he anticipates a five-round match up coming in March.

“I had a meeting with Dana White and Lorenzo Fertitta and told them I wanted to wait, but then I thought about it and saw that I would need to wait too much before my next fight,” Werdum said, via MMAFighting.com. “You don’t remember what you don’t see.”

“We don’t have a date 100 percent confirmed yet, but I believe it’s going to be in March. I already know that it’s going to be a main event, so it’s a five-round fight. He doesn’t have a good cardio, so that’s good for me. He’s explosive when the fight starts, tries to finish it quickly, with jumping stuff and knockouts, so I see a lot of openings to defeat him.”

With the fight expected to be five rounds, it looks like the bout will headline a future card on FOX Sports 1, FOX or UFC Fight Pass.

No matter when or where the event takes place, it is going to be a must-see contest for MMA fans.
