Cain Velasquez and Travis Browne train for UFC 200 undercard

Mixed martial arts fighters Cain Velasquez and Travis Browne will square off in the octagon this July...both are taking part in UFC 200.

Velasquez will fight for the first time since losing the heavyweight title in 2015 to the current champion Fabricio Werdum. He was expected to fight Werdum in a rematch back in February, but an injury to his back forced him out of the fight and dealing with a surgery to correct the injury.

The 33-year old from Salinas, California will now look to earn another title shot when he fights in July as part of one of the biggest UFC cards of all time.

Browne is setting his sights on a second straight win following a TKO victory over Matt Mitrione back in January.

The 33-year old heavyweight from Hawaii has been racking both wins and losses over his last five fights. Beating Velasquez would mark the biggest win of Browne's UFC career and would put him back in the running for a title shot.
