“First of all, big kudos to Werdum. He’s made great development as a MMA fighter. He’s always been tricky, he’s always been persistent with his black belt and jiu-jitsu skills. But now, he truly is a stand-up warrior and he is an all-around MMA master. He’s shown great stuff and the heavyweight division is entirely wide open now.”
“He’s the same guy, but he’s definitely evolved. I’ve evolved, too. And to answer your next question if I think I can beat him, yes, I do think I can beat him. I have been following his progress throughout the years and I can say that I am very hungry to fight him. I definitely do see weaknesses with him. He’s a great athlete, he’s doing great at the moment, but he has weaknesses and I feel I am the guy that can expose those.”
That’s what Alistair Overeem had to say about the new UFC champion Fabricio Werdum. While talking on The MMA Hour Overeem said that he was impressed with the Brazilian’s performance, but he believes he can take advantage of some of his weaknesses.
