ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Fabricio Werdum became the top contender for the UFC heavyweight title by winning a unanimous decision against Travis Browne in the main event of Saturday's UFC card at the Amway Arena.

Werdum (18-5-1) earned his fourth victory since rejoining UFC. The judges scored it 49-46, 50-45 and 50-45 for the five-round bout, setting up a fight for Werdum against champion Cain Velasquez

The Brazilian controlled the fight after withstanding Browne's attempt for a first-round knockout.
