On Saturday, June 8, the UFC will hold UFC on Fuel TV 10 from the Paulo Sarasate Arena in Fortaleza, Brazil.

The night’s main event will feature a rematch in the heavyweight division as Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira faces off with fellow Ultimate Fighter: Brazil coach, Fabricio Werdum. The pair locked horns during the 2006 Pride Openweight Grand Prix with Nogueira taking home a decision win over his fellow countryman. Since then, Nogueira has gone 6-4, with five wins inside the Octagon, while Werdum has gone 8-3 with two straight victories since returning to the promotion in early 2012.

Also on the card, the second season of the Brazilian installment of the UFC’s reality show, The Ultimate Fighter, will come to a close as William Macario faces off with Leo Santos. The main card also features a light heavyweight clash as former Strikeforce champion Rafael Cavalcante meets Thiago Silva, middleweights Eddie Mendez and Daniel Sarafian lock horns, veteran welterweights Jason High and Erick Silva do battle, and TUF veterans Rony Jason and Mike Wilkinson collide.

The 12-fight event will kick off at 5:00 p.m. ET with six bouts streaming on the promotion’s YouTube and Facebook pages. Six additional bouts will follow on Fuel TV at 8 p.m. ET.
