Video: Highlights: UFC on FUEL TV 10

FORTALEZA, BRAZIL – Fabricio Werdum beat legendary jiu-jitsu ace Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira at his own game and ended a night of submissions in fitting fashion.

The Brazilian heavyweights, who also recently served as head coaches on “The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil 2,” met in the FUEL TV-televised headliner of Saturday’s UFC on FUEL TV 10 event at Paulo Sarasate Arena in Fortaleza, Ceara, Brazil.

Werdum (17-5-1 MMA, 5-2 UFC) largely controlled the action and overcame some first-round fatigue before getting the fight to the ground, where he eventually caught Nogueira (34-8-1 MMA, 5-4 UFC) in the second round with an armbar. It avenged a 2006 defeat to “Big Nog” that came in the PRIDE organization.

Check out the highlights above.
