Werdum wants title fight after beating Nogueira


Fabricio Werdum is on a 2-fight win streak in the UFC's heavyweight division and is currently scheduled to fight Antonio Nogueira this spring. A confident Werdum is not looking past Nogueira, but knows what he wants should he win:

After he gets revenge on his fellow countryman, "Vai Cavalo" wants to challenge for the 265-pound strap and it makes no difference to him who is holding the belt.

He breaks it down to Pro MMA Now:

"My focus now is Nogueira fight first. After I beat him, I know it's so difficult a fight, but I'm training a lot for this fight. After then, I don't' know who will be the owner of the belt. But, I want the belt. Maybe 'Bigfoot,' Dos Santos, Cain Velasquez, it don't matter, I want the belt."

Fabricio has already faced Junior dos Santos and Antonio Silva, defeating "Bigfoot" under the Strikeforce banner in 2009 and losing to "JDS" in 2008 in the very first round at UFC 90 via knockout in what was the Octagon debut for "Cigano."

Definitely deserves it if he puts Nog away fashionably.

<blockquote>Condit's Face Broke My Hand - <blockquote>Chaelismyhero - If JDS wins and Nog wins,who gets the next title shot? <br /><br />Would JDS get a shot after 1 win like Cain? I dont think so.</blockquote>If Cain wins, they'll try to figure out a way to get Reem title fight in a timely manner. Otherwise yes, JDS rematch. Hw is that thin. If Bigfoot and Cormier win it would go to Cormier. <img src="/images/phone/droid.png" alt="Phone Post" border="0" style="vertical-align:middle;"/></blockquote><br /> ur opinion is about a good as anyone else's and HW being "thin"? Cmon buddy HW is deeper than its EVER been lol

Yeah I agree somewhat. Beating Fedor and being the 1st to do it is VERY IMPRESSIVE! he also beat Kyle & Bigfoot before that. BUT Did lose to Reem before coming to UFC. and going by thier win streaks in UFC right now, I'd go with Hunt! Werdum is next though if he beats Nog.

I think Werdum could beat Cain, Bigfoot and Hunt. I don't think he will ever get past Junior though...
