Fabricio Werdum knelt at the side of his hero, Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira.

UFC on Fuel TV: Nogueira v Werdum


The respect from Werdum certainly was there. And this time, so was a victory, as Werdum forced Nogueira to submit in the second round in the main event of UFC on FUEL TV 10 at

Ginasio Paulo Sarasate in Fortaleza, Brazil on Saturday night.

“He is in fact a great idol for all Brazilians,” Werdum said in the post-fight televised interview. “It was my second fight with him and it was a tough fight.”

The bout was a rematch of a 2006 Pride Fighting Championship fight, which Nogueira won by decision. The rematch was scheduled to go five rounds — at least before Werdum grabbed Nogueira’s left arm.

Werdum, who began the hold from atop Nogueira’s back, ratcheted down the hold. Nogueira verbally submitted midway through the second round.

The main event followed the arc of most of the other events on the night, as only two of the 12 fights went the distance.
