It seems that Fabricio Werdum will not be getting an immediate rematch for the UFC Heavyweight Title, as he has been scheduled to fight Ben Rothwell on #UFC203.
Werdum dropped the belt to new Champion Stipe Miocic at #UFC198 and will now feature on the same card as Miocic, as Miocic looks to make his first Title defence against Alistair Overeem.
The news was broken by Ariel Helwani of MMAFighting.com as you can see below;
Werdum vs Rothwell booked for 9/10 at UFC 203 in Cleveland.

It is likely that the winner of this bout will be vying for a Title shot against the winner of Miocic Vs Overeem but as we know with the UFC nothing is ever guaranteed.
