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

The night’s main event featured a rematch in the heavyweight division as Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira faced 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, came to a close as William Macario faced off with Leo Santos. The main card also featured a light heavyweight clash as former Strikeforce champion Rafael Cavalcante met Thiago Silva, middleweights Eddie Mendez and Daniel Sarafian locked horns, veteran welterweights Jason High and Erick Silva did battle, and TUF veterans Rony Jason and Mike Wilkinson collided.
