UFC 198 Free Fight: Watch Fabricio Werdum Submit Cain Velasquez, Begin His Reign

Kelsey Mowatt

Fabricio Werdum

If all goes well in the next few weeks (knock on wood), Fabricio Werdum will defend the heavyweight title for the first time on May 14th, when he  throws hands with Stipe Miocic.

In advance of UFC 198, the promotion has posted one of Werdum’s greatest wins to date, when he tapped out Cain Velasquez last June to become champ (you could make the case that Werdum’s greatest victory yet was his submission win over Fedor Emelianenko). If you never saw Werdum’s title cinching performance, you can change that right now, by watching the scrap below.

UFC 198 will be hosted by the Arena da Baixada in Curitiba, Brazil.
