UFC & MotorSports come to FUEL June 8

With the Sprint Cup series heading over to TNT this week, FOX Sports will spend most of their time devoted to Qualifying legs on SPEED and to the UFC and AMA on FUEL. This press release highlights FOX's focus on the UFC and AMA this Saturday.

KEY HEAVYWEIGHT MATCHUP AT UFC ON FUEL TV 10: NOGUEIRA VS. WERDUM THIS WEEKEND – Two of the top Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) heavyweights in the world meet again on their home turf in Brazil when The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) Brazil 2 coaches Minotauro 
Nogueira (34-7-1, 1NC) and Fabricio Werdum (16-5-1) battle at UFC ON FUEL TV 10. The event takes 
place at the Paulo Sarasate Arena in Fortaleza, Brazil, LIVE on FUEL TV Saturday, June 8 (8:00 PM 
ET). The No. 3 ranked heavyweight in the world, Werdum, and the eighth-ranked Nogueira, revisit their 
2006 PRIDE bout in the Octagon. If Werdum wins, he could be next in line for a heavyweight title bout. 
The main event is preceded by five exciting matchups, including TUF Brazil Season 2 finale welterweight 
William “Patolino” Macario against Leonardo Santos. Light heavyweight Thiago Silva (14-3-0, 2NC) 
faces former Strikeforce champion Rafael “Feijao” Cavalcante (11-3-0, 1NC), middleweight Daniel
Sarafian (8-3-0) squares-off with Eddie Mendez (7-1-1, 1NC), and welterweight rising star Erick Silva
(14-3-0, 1NC) challenges Jason “The Kansas City Bandit” High (17-3-0). The Ultimate Fighter Brazil 1 
winner Rony Jason (13-3-0) takes on Mike “The Warrior” Wilkinson (8-0-0) in an exciting 
featherweight bout. Announcers Jon Anik and Kenny Florian call all bouts live from Fortaleza on FUEL 

FUEL TV offers complete coverage of UFC ON FUEL TV 10 kicking off on Friday, June 7 (3:00 PM ET)

previewing the main card action. FUEL TV wraps coverage of the evening’s fights at 11:00 PM ET with 
the UFC POSTFIGHT SHOW, featuring Glazer, Sonnen and Stann highlighting the biggest and best

WERDUM NEEDS WIN AT UFC ON FUEL TV 10 MORE THAN NOGUEIRA, SAYS SONNEN – When UFC heavyweights Minotauro “Big Nog” Nogueira and Fabricio Werdum face off this weekend at UFC ON FUEL TV 10, UFC TONIGHT analyst Chael Sonnen expects a great fight. While praising Nogueira’s ability and legacy in the business, he questions whether his time has passed, and believes 
that Werdum holds the edge with youth, speed and hunger. “We’ve all been waiting for Big Nog to quit 
fighting, and we need to accept that he’s still got it,” says Sonnen. “This guy can still fight. He’s ranked 
No. 8 in the world, and that might be a little bit low but he’s going to be tested with Werdum. Werdum 
needs this a little bit more. He’s a little sharper right now. Werdum should win this fight.” Follow the link

Round 4 of the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship heads to Mt. Morris, PA this weekend for the 
GEICO High Point National airing on FUEL TV Saturday, June 8 (1:00 PM ET). With only 10 points 
separating the top two competitors, overall leader Ryan Villopoto and second place rider Ryan Dungey, 
Dungey carries the momentum into this weekend after securing his first overall win this season at the last
