The closer we get to more I think Werdum just might pull this off. He's a bad man with Corderio in his corner

 

Cain hasn't fought for 2 years and will be at altitude.... Werdum's been practicing in it for a month or two while Cain only came a few weeks early...

Nah, Cain is gonna give him that work.

Cain Velasquez apparently doesn’t see the humor inFabricio Werdum’s quip that he’s more Mexican than Velasquez himself.


One day after Werdum made the comment about the UFC heavyweight champion on UFC Embedded, the two crossed paths over breakfast at the JW Marriott. And when the interim champion went to shake Velasquez’s hand, the the latter wasn’t having it. 

"To me it seemed to be two-faced," Velasquez said at Wednesday’s UFC 188 open workouts at the Interactive Museum of Economics. "Don’t say something insulting to me. Stick to your guns. Don’t come up to me the next day and try to be buddy-buddy with me."

Velasquez’s comments came after Werdum gave his version of the events.

"Yesterday I saw Cain Velasquez at breakfast," Werdum told reporters. "I said hi, I shake hands with Daniel Cormier. ... When I shake hands with Cain Velasquez he said ‘no, no, I don’t want to shake your hand.’ I said why, he said ‘you talk about me, I don’t like that.’"

Werdum explained his "more Mexican" comment this way: Werdum, who has done Spanish language commentary for the UFC, has spent more time in the country than Velasquez, a Mexican-American born in the United States and raised in Salinas, Calif. 

"I just said that Cain Velasquez was born in the USA, he’s not from Mexico," Werdum said. "I said that I’ve come to Mexico a lot of times, maybe 20 times, I’ve stayed a long time for my fight, the last time I stayed two months here."

Anything can happen, but I expect Cain to beat him down like he's done every guy besides the lucky punch.

I think Werdum is ready to weather the storm early. If he happens to do so, I think we'll be in for a historical fight

 

Werdum mentally and physically is at his apex, I'm really hoping we see a special show

Cain seems pissed in the 3rd episode :lol

 

Werdum feelin himself throughout this entire series :lol called Rockhold a nobody :lol

Something about werdum makes me feel like he's ready for this fight I had to look up totally forgot how he beat fedor

IMO Werdum's been undefeated since 2008 (got KO'd by JDS)

 

I believe he beat Overeem. I have no clue why Werdum was fighting scared, he was clearly winning the stand up and I believe he even outstruck him

 

His striking is exceptional now with the help of Cordeiro, he isn't a big slow HW that Cain can just out-quick, A-1 BJJ, good cardio, smart....

 

I've long thought Cain was unbeatable. If he can shake off ring rust and the 2 year layoff and run through Werdum I will have to say Cain is one of the greatest fighters ever if he isn't already

I knew that Werdum's comment was going to hurt a lot of feelings..

I could see it happening tbh. It happened with Dustin and McGregor. When you stay in the same hotel anything can happen

 

Faber and Frankie ended up having rooms next door to each other in the Philippines :lol 

 

Cowboy said "screw the title fight, I want to fight before December". Dana said no man :lol

 

Islam Makahavev called out Dustin Porier... 8o

post #9553 of 34144
I remember Cormier and Jones crossing paths in the hallway and thinking "you can't let that happen".

Especially if there's bad blood. Faber and Edgar I can see being an oversight. And there was no bad blood between these guys a few days ago.

But I would think they're schedules are locked and loaded so they don't cross paths like that. And I'm surprised they keep everyone in the same hotel as well.

Excited to see Henry Cejudo fight again. I hope they don't give him a title shot against DJ if he wins though. They should keep building him up.

Interesting to see how Gastelum looks at 185 again. He'll be undersized, but he has the skills to be top 10.

Rooting for Alvarez to get his first W in the UFC.

Also, Cain is going to win, but I'm pulling for Werdum.

Oh well. Not like rockhold can do anything about it.

I was watching the premiere of strike back and bisping was in it playing a former ufc fighter turned henchman.

Rockhold looked SHOOK

Shook? At what ??

Just thought... would be wild for AKA if Luke and Khabib won the straps in their divisions, which is totally doable. 4 out of 8.

Keep in mind that episode was shot after Rockhold went on a rant to Ariel about Werdum being cowardly. DC pointed over to Rockhold a few tables down, Rockhold IMO looked timid and whispered "he's fake" or some crap

 

Rockhold felt comfortable boasting about it behind Werdum's back but he wouldn't dare say it to his face.. and he had the chance to

Weird how the future champs at that gym were thought to be fitch and koscheck. They could've been if gsp wasn't around back then.

post #9566 of 34144

cain is a great fighter but he is probably the least charismatic guy i've ever seen. even when he pretends to be pissed to hype the fight, he sounds flat. this will probably be an underrated fight though. werdum is pretty damn good (either that or i've bought into the promotion vids).

His only evidence for Werdum being fake is that he can speak fluent Spanish laugh.gif

Werdum ain't scared at all man that's for sure. He's Cain's toughest matchup at heavyweight by far I would say just because of his ability in the standup and the fact that Cain want's no parts of him on the ground. If Cain can't push him up against the cage and do him like JDS, Werdum might just get loose on him.

Werdum gonna get his *** whooped.
