ufc 203

Another heavyweight contest has been added to UFC 203, as Fabricio Werdum returns against Ben Rothwell.

Set for September 10 from Cleveland, the event takes place inside the Quicken Loans Arena with Stipe Miocic defending his heavyweight title against Alistair Overeem.

Werdum (20-6-1) lost the belt to Miocic earlier this month, suffering his first loss in seven fights. The Brazilian had won the belt over Cain Velasquez and was making his first defense.

Rothwell (36-10) had his four-fight win streak snapped by former champion Junior dos Santos.
