ufc 196

In just over two weeks, Fabricio Werdum will try to retain the UFC heavyweight title when he defends the belt against Cain Velasquez at UFC 196.

Set for February 6 from Las Vegas, the event also features a co-headline bout pitting former welterweight champion Johny Hendricks against Stephen Thompson.

Other planned fights include Roy Nelson-Jared Rosholt, Ovince Saint Preux-Rafael “Feijao” Cavalcante and Joseph Benavidez-Zach Makovsky.

A special attraction is set for the UFC Fight Pass prelims, as Mickey Gall debuts against Mike Jackson. If Gall wins, he will be matched up with former WWE superstar Phil “CM Punk” Brooks later this year in the Octagon debut of Brooks.
