The UFC announced this evening that the rumored heavyweight title eliminator between Travis Browne and Fabricio Werdum will take place at UFC on FOX 11, April 19th at the Amway Center in Orlando, Florida. It’s not yet clear whether Browne vs. Werdum will serve as the event’s headliner, but the winner of the fight will likely receive a title shot against Cain Velasquez at the end of this year, after the champ recovers from shoulder surgery.
Also on the UFC on FOX 11 lineup, women’s bantamweight contenders Miesha Tate and Liz Carmouche will face off in a meeting of fighters who know what Ronda Rousey‘s armbar feels like. Tate is riding a two-fight losing streak, thanks to her unsuccessful performance against Rousey at UFC 168, which followed her TKO loss to Cat Zingano in April. (Both of those matches won Fight of the Night, by the way.) Meanwhile, Carmouche is coming off a decision loss to Alexis Davis at UFC Fight for the Troops 3 in November. Tate and Carmouche were originally slated to fight each other last July, before Tate got drafted to coach on TUF 18.
Tickets for UFC on FOX 11 will go on sale February 14th. We’ll let you know when more fights are added to the card.
