It was supposed to be at UFC 180, but heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez (13-1-0) and interim champion Fabricio Werdum (19-5-1) will meet at UFC 188 in Mexico City.
It’s fight week!
A late injury to UFC heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez derailed the sold-out November 15th UFC 180 title match in Mexico City with #1 Fabricio Werdum.
UFC heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez and #1 contender Fabricio Werdum will headline the UFC 180 press conference tomorrow from the Polyforum Siqueiros in Mexico City, Mexico.
The press conference is not only an opportunity to promote the card, but another step towards introducing mixed martial arts and its Latin-American stars to an emerging market currently best known for its boxing prizefighters.
