Werdum: I will submit Velasquez


Fabricio Werdum is one of the more prolific jiu-jitsu players in the MMA game, and most noticeable submitted the previously unsubmitted Fedor Emelianenko. Werdum is currently riding a three bout win streak and is aimed directly at a title fight with Velasquez, whom he expects to beat Dos Santos, but whom he also expects he can beat by submission:

"I want the belt, but Cain Velasquez is a good fight for me too, because he takes down guys, and if he takes me down, for sure I'm finishing him. I'll try for sure, I know it's a hard fight. He has good conditioning."

I don't see him taking Cain down. Cain via TKO.

I think there is no way he can keep u with Cain's cardio, but Werdum's striking is better than Cain's. Cain wears him down in 2 rounds and finishes him. Werdum has rolled out into the second round looking real tired his last fight against Nog and I didn't think that was a good sign. Maybe it was something else though? He unleashed fury against Nelson for 3 straight a few fights ago. ...

"for sure I'm finishing him. I'll try for sure." So is he surely going to finish him? Or is he just surely going to try?

This is the fight I want to see, but I think Werdum is just too slow in the end

Cain sets a pace that forces fighters to continuously defend and attack and he capitalizes on mistakes very well.I think that Cain would be very difficult to submit for anyone considering his build. Cain by stoppage in rd 3

I think many are greatly underestimating Werdum's chances against Cain. The only clear advantage I see Cain having in that fight is with cardio.

I guess someone doesn't agree how good werdum is. That's fine. But he's the best bjj practitioner at hw Imo. The only comparable bjj player in the ufc hw division is gonzaga.
