A confident UFC interim heavyweight champion, Fabricio Werdum stopped by the UFC Tonight studios to preview his upcoming fight against Cain Velasquez.

Here’s highlights:

Fabricio Werdum on finally facing Cain Velasquez for the title: “On June 13, I’ll show everyone who’s the real champion.”

Werdum on who the Mexican crowd will be rooting for in the title fight: “I think 80 percent for him, 20 percent for me.”

Werdum on how he’ll fight Velasquez: “I think Cain has good boxing, good wrestling and good conditioning, but if he takes down me, I say thank you. I’m good. It’s my home. I think he’ll stay there. I’ll finish him.”

Werdum on how the fight will end: “I don’t know. When I beat Fedor, I had the same feeling. I’m very confident. I don’t think I’ll lose the fight. I’m going to win for sure.

 Daniel Cormier to Fabricio Werdum: “The UFC heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez told me to tell you to stop carrying the belt everywhere. It’s making him mad. If you take it to the Florida media tour, he’s going to take it away from you. To be the man, you have to beat the man.”

Werdum on Cormier: “I love him. Five years ago, he helped me with a lot of training with wrestling. When we first met, I took him down. I took him down three times. He grabbed me in a double leg and took me down and I got him in an armbar. You remember that!”
