Fabricio Werdum

“Watch my fight on February 4th. I’m anxious and very eager to fight. It has been six-months since my last fight. So, watch this fight because it will be a great show. I expect a great fight against Roy Nelson. … I can visualize my next three fights. I think I’ll fight now against Roy Nelson, then one more fight, and then I’ll get a title shot. I see a rematch against Junior dos Santos. It would be the peak of my career to be able to fight a guy who knocked me out, the champion – undefeated in the UFC. He has such heavy hands, “Cigano” showed the world that he’s a true champion, and I would love to fight for the title against him. I see myself submitting “Cigano” on the ground.”

    Yeah I’m not so sure about this claim

  • http://lowkickmma.com/author/godsofwararise godsofwararise

    Yes, but you’re not very likely to be able to get it to the ground before KTFO’s you.

    Me to werdum : ” Hahahahahahahaha That was a good one ! “

    i seem to see a vague memory of JDS knocking out Werdum in the first round.

  • http://lowkickmma.com/author/TheMangler The Mangler

    That’s considering you can get him to the ground……Before that he’ll catch you with a nasty uppercut and seriously, he’ll sprawl every shot you take.

    JDS hit him so hard he still isn’t thinking straight

  • http://lowkickmma.com/author/computerjiujitsubb computerjiujitsubb

    Did he forget he’s fighting Roy Nelson? Better not look past Roy

  • http://lowkickmma.com/author/AhOu AhOu

    Junior landed a lucky punch. Werdum submits him 9/10 times.

    Maybe but I wouldn’t bet my house on it.

  • http://lowkickmma.com/author/TheMacMuch TheMacMuch

    I guess Junior is a very lucky man then

    wurdum is to slow and unexplosive, that combined with his predictable gameplan ensures that he’l never be champ.

    look past roy at your own peril that belly will get you

    Yah, fast and explosive are the most important qualifications for being an MMA champion.

    And I see myself KO’ing Jon Jones, then I wake up too.

    Werdum being heavyweight champ. Just no. A big fat plain and simple no.

    Let Mir snap his arm off and take it home with him.

  • http://lowkickmma.com/author/Brasil Brasil

    Of course I like Werdum (BJJ at its best) but he should STFU and start winning some fights before making those absurd claims….

  • http://lowkickmma.com/author/Entity Entity

    I see him getting KTFO by Jr.

  • http://lowkickmma.com/author/Entity Entity

    He still thinks it was the video game.

    i see werdum submiting jds on the ground, but the only way that fight goes to the ground is by werdum being unconscious.

  • http://lowkickmma.com/author/dropkickmurphy dropkickmurphy

    I am looking forward to Roy and Werdum, people don’t realize how good Roy can grapple. He had a good bout and actually beat Mir in a straight grappling match at grappler’s quest.

    Bad sign when you look past the fight you have and dream of a title shot.

  • http://lowkickmma.com/author/KeithFarrell KeithFarrell

    He couldn’t take down Reem with a broken foot (or toe).
    JDS avoided Cain, Carwin and Nelson’s takedowns so please tell me how Werdum will ever get him down?

    I see Fabricio eating the canvas for dinner! =D

  • http://lowkickmma.com/author/D D

    I see Werdum on the ground in this fight too. Not the way he does though.

    its not lucky if somebody trains a punch for ten years and lands it clean in a fight. luck is just an excuse for losing like when they said werdum got a lucky submission on fedor even though hes been training those submissions since he was a kid
