Fabricio Werdum is now 3-0 inside the UFC since losing his last fight in Strikeforce to Alistair Overeem. In the heavyweight division, a three fight win streak can put you near title contention and Werdum is anxious to meet the champion either in a title fight, or perhaps first in a coaching position on a mexican/latin season of the Ultimate Fighter:

Werdum, though, is holding out hope he can fight Velasquez, the UFC's Mexican-American champion, at some point. Even if it means waiting.

"For those who don't know, I'm a commentator for the UFC in Spanish because I can speak in Spanish ... after living for many years in Spain," Werdum said through a translator. "I came with the idea to the UFC of doing an 'Ultimate Fighter' with Velasquez in Mexico.

"I don't know if he's going to beat 'Cigano.' It's going to be a very good fight. I'll be sitting back, observing both of them. ... But I've already spent one year without fighting because I did 'The Ultimate Fighter' here (in Brazil), so I wouldn't like that to happen again. But if the UFC says wait a little more, do 'The Ultimate Fighter,' then fight the champion, I'll definitely wait and be working out to become a champion."

The problem with giving Cormier a meaningful heavyweight fight is he says his next is his last at heavyweight. You don't really want him beating the top contender and then peacing out at heavyweight. Phone Post

TUF vs Cain would be perfect if the timing worked out but that would keep him on the shelf for about a year.

But they want to go into Mexico, they need Cain to be the guy and a HW who is a top guy that speaks Spanish like Werdum would be perfect.

I think its what the UFC would love to do but it would keep Cain out assuming he wins vs JDS in the fall and it would push that fight back till probably this time next year.

They wouldnt likely fill till end of the year/early next, wouldnt air till March/April and they woudlnt fight till June.

I hope they dont do it but it seems like something they would love to do.

I think it would help give UFC time to continue finding additional heavyweights to their roster. A year would not be enough to stack it, but its a decent time buyer. Phone Post 3.0
