Fabricio Werdum, a former heavyweight champion, and former Bellator champ Alexander Volkov will be the main event at UFC Fight Night 127 on March 17, inside O2 Arena in London, England.
Michael Bisping has turned down the chance to headline in a retirement fight due to health reasons after two brutal defeats.
Werdum who was campaigning for a title shot against current heavyweight champ Stipe Miocic, the man who took the belt from him at May 2016’s UFC 198, but instead, light heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier will move up to challenge champ Stipe Miocic in a super fight at UFC 226 in July.
Fabricio Werdum recently defeated Marcin Tybura on November 19, 2017, at UFC Fight Night 121 and won the bout via unanimous decision. Prior to that, Werdum defeated Walt Harris at UFC 216 via armbar.
Meanwhile, Russian Volkov will go into his fourth UFC contest riding a five-fight win streak including last September’s TKO win over Stefan Struve.
