I thought Crocop/Gonzaga winner (Crocop) gets the next title shot.
P.S. WAR WERDUM!
"He will face whoever wins the UFC 74 match between current beltholder Randy Couture and Mirko “Cro Cop” Filipovic/Gabriel Gonzaga that is slated for August 25."
They do get the next title shot....they are saying that AA will face whoever the winner of that fight is.
I think Werdum is very underrated in MMA. He trains with Cro Cop (he is his BJJ teacher). And he has a win over Gonzaga via strikes....
I doubt they are going to give him a title shot that quick. He really doesnt have any "High profile" wins. (besides Gonzaga which was a few years ago.)
Arlovski better not think of him as a stepping stone though. He takes hits from one of the best strikers in MMA on a regular basis and has a GREAT ground game.
