The Ultimate Fighting Championship has finally announced the date of their debut in Mexico. UFC president Dana White held an official press conference declaring that UFC 180 will take place on Nov. 15 live from Mexico City. As expected, reigning UFC heavyweight world champion Cain Velasquez will square off against No. 1 contender Fabricio Werdum in the event’s headliner.

In his last five Octagon appearances, Velasquez has earned four wins, with a lone loss coming via a 2011 knockout to former UFC heavyweight champion Junior dos Santos. Velasquez avenged the loss at UFC 155, dominating “Cigano” en route to a unanimous decision victory, and recently scored a fifth-round finish of dos Santos at UFC 166. The champ has been recovering from a recent shoulder surgery since the win.

The challenger Werdum has gone undefeated since his return to the Octagon. The Brazilian has not tasted defeat since a unanimous decision loss to Alistair Overeem under the Strikeforce banner. Recently, “Vai Cavalo” scored a unanimous-decision win over Travis Browne at UFC on Fox 11.

White also announced further details  about The Ultimate Fighter: Latin America. Both the champ and the challenger will coach teams consisting of featherweights and bantamweights from all over Latin America and Mexico. The finals of TUF: Latin America are also expected to take place on the UFC 180 card, though no other bouts were announced. White also alluded to more high-profile bouts being announced in the coming weeks.  Filming begins on the week of May 12, and the series premieres on the week of August 18.
