On Saturday, April 19, the UFC hosted UFC on Fox 11: Werdum vs. Browne from the Amway Center in Orlando, Fla.

In the night’s main event, former Strikeforce combatant and world champion Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu practitioner Fabricio Werdum battled towering Hawaiian Travis Browne for shot at the UFC heavyweight title. Werdum entered the contest riding a three-fight winning streak since his return to the promotion. The 36-year-old had been out of action since submitting Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira via armbar last June. Browne, meanwhile, also stepped into the Octagon riding the momentum of a three-fight winning streak, with all three wins coming via first-round stoppage.

The night’s co-main event featured former women’s bantamweight title challengers Miesha Tate and Liz Carmouche. Tate was still searching for her first UFC win. The former Strikeforce champion was stopped by Cat Zingano in her promotional debut and then succumbed to a trademark Ronda Rousey armbar at UFC 168 in December. For Carmouche, she was looking to get back in the win column after dropping a decision to Alexis Davis in November. Like Tate, Carmouche also fell victim to a Rousey armbar in her promotional debut, but rebounded with a stoppage of Jessica Andrade in her second Octagon appearance.

The 13-fight event kicked off Saturday at 3:30 p.m. ET with three bouts streaming on the promotion’s digital network, UFC Fight Pass. Six additional preliminary card bouts followed on Fox Sports 1 at 5 p.m. ET, with the four-fight main card airing live on Fox at 8 p.m. ET.
