At last, the heavyweight title will be married in June.
The two were supposed to fight in the November when the UFC made its maiden voyage south of the border. When Velasquez -- who last competed in Oct. 2013 against Junior dos Santos -- suffered an injury in training camp, Werdum was given a new opponent. He defeated Mark Hunt at UFC 180 (TKO) to win the interim title.
The 32-year old Velasquez (13-1) will look to make it four wins in a row against Werdum. Since losing his belt to Dos Santos in 2011, he has since beat the Brazilian twice. He also defeated Antonio Silva twice, one of them a title defense.
UFC 188 will take place at the Mexico City Arena on Saturday, June 13.
