The 13-bout lineup for “UFC on FUEL TV: Nogueira vs. Werdum” has been finalized … sort of. Every scrap in the June 8 event has been confirmed, except for the two middleweights competing in the finals of “The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil 2.”  A little known 185-pounder will secure his short-term future by winning a six-figure UFC contract by taking the tournament.
