    This is a great fight…Werdum is not the same guy who fought in 2006. He is much better rounded. But in this division anything can happen as bigfoot showed against reem

    I think it's Werdum's fight to lose. His ground game has always been good, but now his stand-up looks great and dynamic and he's become quite aggressive in his attack. That said, Big Nog, although old, beat-up and broken down, is still a serious threat.

    I'm looking forward to this fight. It should be good.
