It looks like Fabricio Werdum will get the next heavyweight title-shot so contenders like Browne and Barnett need something to do. Both are coming off impressive finishes and the winner would be likely to produce the same if paired at the upcoming event. Together they combine for 41 stoppages in 48 total victories.
This week the UFC confirmed the company’s return to FOX for a December 14 show in Sacramento with two tilts attached to the card. As might be expected, local favorite Urijah Faber will see action at UFC on FOX 9, facing Michael McDonald in a co-headlining clash, while a lightweight title-fight between Anthony Pettis and T.J. Grant has been tentatively penciled in to the main event slot. With a few months’ worth of wiggle room, there are plenty of options worth considering for the evening’s effort including bouts both divisionally relevant and full of potential to entertain.
