Two years after losing a decision to Fabricio Werdum, Travis Browne will get his shot at redemption.
Browne steps in for the injured Ben Rothwell to meet the former UFC heavyweight champion at UFC 203 next month. The event features Stipe Miocic defending his heavyweight title against Alistair Overeem from Cleveland.
Back in 2014, Browne (18-4-1) was riding a three-fight win streak when he faced off against Werdum in a No. 1 contender match. The Brazilian controlled the action, earning a decision on his way to winning the title.
Werdum (20-6-1) dropped the belt to Miocic this past May, suffering a first round knockout loss.
