Dana White said he thinks Werdum "played it safe" and that he didn't show all his tools tonight. I have to disagree with both of those.
Tate said that when she was waiting for the decision, she too thought Carmouche won because of "riding time." Figures she won on damage.
Dana White says he thought Liz Carmouche won the fight with Tate; he gave her the 1st & 2nd. #UFConFOX
Dana White says Travis Browne definitely has a broken hand, and maybe a broken rib too. #UFConFOX
Cowboy Cerrone wants to stay active. "I'm ready for Baltimore next week if that's a possibility." #UFConFOX
Tonight's Awards ... Fight of the Night: Alves-Baczynski Performance: Cerrone, Alex White #UFConFOX
numbers revised but still epic for Werdum: 171-77 overall; 121-60 in significant strikes; 2-0 takedowns.
Werdum in the middle of the cage: "I don't get an interview? No interview? Nothing?" Would've loved to hear what he had to say.
Fabricio Werdum heads towards a UFC heavyweight title fight after a 49-46, 50-45, 50-45 unanimous decision over Travis Browne. #UFConFOX
Unofficial FightMetric numbers have Werdum out-landing Browne 180-64 overall & 136-53 in significant strikes. #UFConFOX
That was an absolutely masterful performance from Werdum. Led basically from start to finish. He deserves Cain next. #UFConFOX
This #UFConFOX main card is bookended by a pair of soon-to-be 37-year-olds fighting like they're 25. This is nuts.
Werdum does a kip up in the 3rd round of a heavyweight fight?! Wow. This mean is in shape. #UFConFOX
Well this is sure trending away from Browne. He needs something sudden and powerful to turn the tide. #UFConFOX
Late rally helps Tate past Carmouche in UFC on FOX co-main event
Whoa! Werdum still looks fast, fit and sharp at the end of the round as Browne was fading. Bad omen perhaps, but HW's only need 1 shot. #UFC
Browne with the fast start, but Werdum withstands it, takes him down. That's the first takedown against Browne in the UFC. #UFConFOX
Seems like you guys are torn on this one, justifiably. Give me Browne here. Just a feeling. #UFConFOX
Love a main event with two credible, contending heavyweights. Who you got? Browne or Werdum? #UFConFOX
Miesha Tate def. Liz Carmouche via unanimous decision 29-28 3x #UFConFOX
What a third round for Tate. And what heart from Carmouche. That choke was momentarily locked. #UFConFOX
Official time of the stoppage was 3:15 of Rd. 1. #UFConFOX
Whoa, a lightning strike finish for Cerrone, who looked like he was in all sorts of trouble. Stuns Barboza, gets the RNC. #UFConFOX
What a start. Barboza was like, "Donald, here's the love. Now here's the hate." Talk about flipping the switch.
All three judges score the one-sided fight 30-27 for Yoel Romero in the #UFConFOX opener.
Romero turns 37 years old in about two weeks. In a young man's game, he seems to defy his age. #UFConFOX
Boy was I wrong. That was an impressive performance for Romero. One of the first times he's really put everything together. #UFConFOX
Strong start for Romero in the 1st. Tavares needs to work in space. If Romero keeps managing to crowd him he's gonna have a long night.
I like Tavares over Romero via decision in this #UFConFOX main card opener. You?
Tim Kennedy told me that his right hand X-ray was inconclusive so still doesn't know if it's broken. MRI early next week.
Hey y'all, I'll be heading over to the
account to tweet until the main card. Join me, will ya?
Notes: WSOF formally announces they signed Jake Shields. Also, Bellator announces Michael Page vs. Rickey Rainey for their 5/17 PPV.
The Werdum-Browne staredown. #UFConFOX
Werdum also may be thinking ahead towards Velasquez in putting extra work in on his conditioning.
Werdum has historically weighed between 242-255 but was as low as 233 when he fought Andrei Arlovski at UFC 70 in 2007.
Fabricio Werdum came in almost 10 pounds lighter than his last bout. No doubt he took his conditioning for the 5-rounder seriously. #UFC
UFC on FOX main event weigh-in results: No. 2 Fabricio Werdum (232.5) vs. No. 3 Travis Browne (245.5). Winner gets Cain Velasquez next. #UFC
