UFC on FOX 11: Werdum vs Browne Predictions- Kamikaze Overdrive MMA

Scott Johnson

In MMA’s version of speed poker, UFC on FOX 11 will cap off a 9 day run in which 34 fights will have taken place over the course of 3 events. Not to fret fight fans, this show will not spell the end of the Octagon overdose, as UFC 172 will go down just one week from this Saturday.

In the Fox main event, two Heavyweight hopefuls will collide, as American Travis Browne fights Brazilian Fabricio Werdum with a shot at reining champion Cain Velasquez hanging in the balance. Werdum has put together an impressive winning streak highlighted by his submission win over Fedor in Strikeforce and carried over into his return to the UFC. Browne has been equally as impressive, knocking off a pair of big names in Alistair Overeem and Josh Barnett during his rise to the top. Who gets the shot? Both men are more then capable of pulling it off, it just comes down to execution.

Also on the main card, Miesha Tate tries to return to the win column against fellow Ronda Rousey victim Liz Carmouche. With recent defeats against the champ in the not too distant past, neither lady will be challenging for the gold any time soon, but this is a key fight as far as relevance in the division is concerned.

Unlike the ladies, Donald Cerrone will be looking for his first shot at UFC gold or at least to take a major step in that direction when he faces dangerous striker Edson Barboza. Cerrone has had issues when faced with opportunity and while a win here won’t get a shot a lose will almost certainly preclude him from one.

Opening the main card will be a solid Middleweight scrap between rising young star Brad Tavares and former Olympic wrestler and dangerous knockout artist Yoel Romero. Tavares has compiled 7 wins in his UFC run and could be on the brink of a shot at the top 10, but Romero has yet to lose in the UFC and has big fight aspirations of his own.
