UFC President Dana White recently conducted a roundtable with Brazilian media at ZUFFA headquarters, in Las Vegas, Nevada.

TATAME is reporting that Fabricio Werdum will get a title shot if he defeats Rodrigo Nogueira in early June.

"Yes. If he wins, they will have their title shot," White is quoted as saying.

Werdum and Noguira will be opposing coaches on the second season of TUF Brazil. The first series featured Vitor Belfort and Wanderlei Silva, who ultimately did not fighter after Beflort suffered an injury.

if Overeem wins @ ufc156 you figure he vs the champ on the july 4th card make sense. the timelines match up. and if reem loses cormier could fill the spot if jds is the champ.

A Werdum vs JDS fight in Brazil would be huge.

If either Werdum or JDS lose, then a JDS / Cain vs Overeem makes sense.

Appeasing the Brazil fans and media, that's all. They're six months away from even fighting so I highly doubt a title shot is even being thought of yet so far away. Especially with Overeem and Cormier still in the picture.

HW title fight dec 29th, 2012.  Winner vs Reem in June around the same time Werdum vs Big Nog.  Perfect timing for Werdum vs Reem 3 for the title in October.

 

wam bam thank you mam

Well he barely beat Heath Herrring and got a title shot for his troubles, which he won.  

He was knocked out by Frank Mir to lose his title and then decisioned Randy

He was given Cain to really prove himself and was promptly put to sleep.  

He was given a huge step down in Brendan Schaub and KO'd him so he gets the rematch against Mir

But had his arm ripped off. 

He was given a very favorable match up against Herman and won and now gets back to a ranked opponent. 

When during that run did you expect him to get a title shot?  He's gone 3-3 since winning his interim belt.

Big Nog fan (pun intended, Big Pun if you will,) but I can't argue with this logic; Don't see how anyone can.

If Overeem beats Bogfoot, he'll get his shot. He fights much eatlrlier than Werdum so the timing works out.

It'a Cormier who would be getting screwed. If he beats Staring and Mir, he'd deserve it over Werdum. Only if Cain is champ would Werdum getting the shot over Cormier make sense.

Overall I don't put much weight into Dana's words (as usual). Things are way too up in the air right now to be discussing who fights for the title in Fall 2013.

Every fight is or isn't for a "title shot"

What a system they have created!
