UFC on Fox 11 Fight Poster-478x270Travis Browne has been rocketing up the UFC heavyweight division, and on Saturday he has an opportunity to skip the line in front of Fabricio Werdum for a shot at current UFC heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez later this year in Mexico.

Browne and Werdum are set to headline Saturday’s UFC on FOX 11 card in Orlando, Fla.

The two heavyweights, along with the rest of the fighters on the card, first had to weigh-in Friday to make their bouts official.

The main card also features some other pivotal bouts. In the women’s bantamweight division, Miesha Tate and Liz Carmouche will fight it out to see who will remain relevant at the top of the division. Two exciting lightweight fighters, fan favorite Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone and Edson Barboza will also throw down. Rounding out the FOX televised portion of the card is an important middleweight fight between Brad Tavares and Yoel Romero.
