UFC 188: FABRICIO WERDUM UPSETS CAIN VELASQUEZ FOR HEAVYWEIGHT TITLE
By Brett Okamoto, ESPN
MEXICO CITY -- For the second time in five years, Fabricio Werdum has submitted the best heavyweight in the world.

Werdum (20-5-1) shocked Cain Velasquez at UFC 188 on Saturday night, submitting the two-time UFC heavyweight champion at 2:13 of the third round via guillotine choke at the Mexico City Arena.

The victory comes almost exactly five years after Werdum earned a stunning upset against all-time heavyweight great Fedor Emelianenko under the Strikeforce banner in 2010. Both Emelianenko and Velasquez were widely considered the best heavyweights in the world at the time of their respective losses.
