UFC on Fuel TV: Nogueira vs. Werdum (also known as UFC on Fuel TV 10) was a mixed martial arts event held on June 8, 2013 at Ginásio Paulo Sarasate in Fortaleza, Brazil.[2]


The main event was a heavyweight rematch between The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil season two coaches, and perennial contenders Antônio Rodrigo Nogueira and Fabricio Werdum. It is a rematch of the first fight, in Pride, in which Nogueria won by unanimous decision back in 2006. [2][3]

Also featured on the card was the welterweight finals of season two of The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil.[4] The finals were originally scheduled to be Santiago Ponzinibbio versus William Macario. However, Ponzinibbio broke his hand during his semifinal fight and was replaced by semifinalist Leonardo Santos.

A bout between Thiago Silva and Rafael Cavalcante, briefly linked to UFC 162, was moved to this event to bolster the card.[5]

John Hathaway was expected to face Erick Silva at the event. However, Hathaway was pulled from the bout in late April and replaced by Jason High, who was already scheduled on the card against Ildemar Alcantara.[6] Alcantara instead faced promotional newcomer Leandro Silva.[6]

Derek Brunson was scheduled to face Ronny Markes at the event. However, the bout was scrapped on the day of the weigh in as Markes was involved in a minor traffic accident. While Markes was not seriously injured, the incident prevented him from competing.[7]

This card broke the record for the number of submission finishes on a single UFC event. A total number of eight submission finishes occurred on the card, topping the previous total of 6 that was held by three events.[8]

This was the last UFC to be branded with the Fuel TV brand; on August 17, 2013, Fox Cable Networks discontinued the Speed and Fuel TV channels, replacing them with the Fox Sports 1 and 2 channels. The next Fox Cable UFC matches were branded as UFC Fight Night on FS1.
