After Ben Rothwell pulled out, the UFC are eyeing Travis Browne to step in against Fabricio Werdum. That match takes place at UFC 203 in Cleveland, Ohio.

Their first encounter ended in a unanimous decision in favour of Werdum. Browne is coming off a TKO loss to Cain Velasquez at UFC 200.

Given that Cain got the impressive finish at UFC 200, some may think it would make more sense to match Velasquez with the former heavyweight champion. However, the UFC may have bigger plans for him. They could match Cain with the winner of Overeem vs Miocic.

The heavyweight championship match between Alistair Overeem and Stipe Miocic is the headliner on the very same card. Whoever wins between Werdum and Browne will likely make a call for a title shot in their post-fight interview.
