While not confirming anything officially, “UFC Tonight” reported on Tuesday that a couple of heavyweights are looking to return to action soon and later.
First, Fabricio Werdum is willing to wait until after Cain Velasquez defends his UFC heavyweight title against Junior dos Santos in October to face the winner.
Werdum is coming off a victory over Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira. He also owns a win over Roy Nelson since returning to the promotion.
Nogueira, meanwhile, wants to fight in December at UFC 168: Weidman vs. Silva II to compete on the same card as close friend Anderson Silva.
As for an opponent, “Big Nog” is still interested in taking on Stefan Struve.
