Chances are if you talk to most folks about who are the top heavyweight contenders in the UFC, the name Marcin Tybura wouldn’t get mentioned. But, the surging fighter could change all that tonight, if he takes out Fabricio Werdum.
Tybura will face the former heavyweight champ in the headliner of UFC Fight Night 121, which will go down in Sydney, Australia. As the fight approaches, Werdum is sitting in the #2 ranking, while Tybura is #8. So, if the Polish fighter can defeat Werdum, he’ll be right there in the title shot mix. Getting past the Brazilian star and noted finisher, however, certainly won’t be easy.
Recently the UFC posted the video below, which features both heavyweights, as well as Joe Rogan and Dan Hardy, discussing tonight’s match-up.
