Fabricio Werdum: After I win the Strikeforce Tournament, I want to fight the UFC Champion Cain VelasquezPosted on June 7, 2011, 10:44 PM by Joey Santosus
Top Heavyweight contender Fabricio Werdum, who will meet Alistair Overeem on June 18th, discusses his opponent, as well as his training and preparation for the bout. Werdum assures that he is not looking past his upcoming match-up, but says that when he wins the Strikeforce Heavyweight Grand Prix Tournament, he hopes to be granted a shot at the UFC Champion.
Currently enjoying a three-fight winning streak, the Brazilian will be in action for the first time since his 69-second submission victory over the previously unbeaten Fedor Emelianenko nearly one year ago. If he should emerge victorious against Overeem in the Strikeforce: Overeem vs. Werdum main event, Werdum will advance to the next round of the promotion's Heavyweight Grand Prix, where he will face Antonio "Bigfoot" Silva for a spot in the finals.
