Fabricio Werdum on Cain Velasquez: I’ll submit him if he takes me to the ground
Fabricio Werdum vows to submit Cain Velasquez once they face each other inside the cage
Fabricio Werdum has said earlier this month that he will not back away from a striking match against current heavyweight champ Cain Velasquez. Werdum, as much as he wanted to avenge his KO loss to Junior dos Santos, believes that Cain will best the heavy handed Brazilian in this weekend’s PPV event. The submission ace also stated that he is confident on his chances that he can submit Velasquez once they meet inside the cage.
“I want the belt, but Cain Velasquez is a good fight for me too, because he takes down guys, and if he takes me down, for sure I’m finishing him. I’ll try for sure, I know it’s a hard fight. He has good conditioning.”
Werdum’s predictions may not be that farfetched considering his resume. He is a BJJ blackbelt who owns 9 submissions in his 17 wins. It would be safe to assume that his ground game is superior to Cain’s eventhough the current champ also holds a blackbelt in BJJ. Furthermore, Werdum is the only fighter that owns submission wins over MMA legends Big Nog and Fedor Emalianenko.
