Despite recent comments from Dana White pointing in the other direction it seems as if at least one more Strikeforce fighter is headed to the UFC, as Fabricio Werdum is set for his Octagon return at UFC 143: Diaz vs. Condit against Roy Nelson. The event is set for February 4 and takes place in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Werdum won three of his last four as a member of Strikeforce, including a stunning submission victory over Fedor Emelianenko. Werdum (14-5-1) competed in the UFC before, winning two fights before falling to current UFC heavyweight champ Junior dos Santos.
News of the bout was first reported MMAWeekly.
