The UFC on FUEL TV 10 card is finalized with 12 fights, and will be headlined by the heavyweight bout between TUF Brazil 2 coaches Fabricio Werdum and Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira. That fight will be a rematch from their PRIDE 2006 bout in which Nogueira won via unanimous decision.
The event will take place in Fortaleza, Brazil, at the Ginasio Paulo Sarasate venue with preliminary fights airing on Facebook.
The co-main event will feature a very important fight in the UFC light heavyweight division between UFC veteran Thiago Silva and former Strikeforce light heavyweight champion Rafael Cavalcante. Can Silva get his first official win since UFC 102 in 2009, or will Cavalcante get a huge win in his UFC debut? Both fighters are coming off issues with drug testing which resulted in No Contests in their last outings.
