UFC on Fox 11: Werdum vs. Browne fight card shaping up

A look at the UFC's Orlando debut, a Fox card headlined by Fabricio Werdum and Travis Browne.

The history of Orlando sports consists of the NBA's Orlando Magic and uh ... er ... well Tiger Woods and a few other pro athletes own property there. With that in mind, the UFC is headed for Orlando for the first time in its history, and so far there are several fights worth your attention. Fabricio Werdum meets Travis Browne in a crucial heavyweight main event, while Donald Cerrone battles Edson Barboza in a surefire lightweight slobberknocker. In the same weight class (and a little higher in the top 10), Khabib Nurmagomedov fights Rafael dos Anjos, mercifully ending the speculation as to who and who will not fight him.

Recent women's bantamweight title challenger Miesha Tate will go up against Liz Carmouche, who also fought for Ronda Rousey's belt only to tap to an armbar. Strikeforce vets Pat Healy and Jorge Masvidal will go at it in another great match-up, and vicious striker Yoel Romero takes on Brad Tavares.

UFC on Fox 11 does not have a full lineup yet, but here's what is on tap for April 19th at the Amway Arena:

Fabricio Werdum vs. Travis Browne
Donald Cerrone vs. Edson Barboza
Miesha Tate vs. Liz Carmouche
Rafael dos Anjos vs. Khabib Nurmagomedov
Yoel Romero vs. Brad Tavares
Pat Healy vs. Jorge Masvidal
Jordan Mein vs. Santiago Ponzinnibio
Josh Samman vs. Caio Magalhaes
Thiago Alves vs. Seth Baczynski
