At UFC on Fox 11, audiences around the world will stand witness to a clash of two of MMA's most formidable titans. 

Brazilian jiu-jitsu ace Fabricio "Vai Cavalo" Werdum (17-5-1) and Travis "Hapa" Browne (16-1-1) square off to determine the No. 1 contender to Cain Velasquez's heavyweight throne. 

Werdum, a master on the mat, is a two-time ADCC Submission Wrestling World Championship gold medalist. He is fully capable of submitting any fighter in the world, as demonstrated by his upset victory over Fedor Emelianenko—which ended "The Last Emperor's" 28-fight unbeaten streak.  

Browne, who is on quite the impressive streak as well—including three consecutive Knockout of the Night awards—has showcased boundless potential and a unique flair when it comes to finishing fights. 

He has quickly become one of the most exciting fighters on the UFC roster, which makes him a perfect fit for the sport's grandest of weight classes.
