Talks about training for gonzaga, his fight with arlovski, if he'd fight his former training partner crocop, and the rua brothers leaving chuteboxe.

Good interview...insider knowledge that he has 2 fights on contract with UFC after the GG fight!

didnt like how he said he thought he won the arlovski fight when the only damage he did was palm strikes, by the way fabricio...andrei didnt set the pace you both did it, takes 2 to tango

the decision win for arlovski was correct and i would be shocked if werdum got a title shot after beating gonzaga, i would be furious actually that arlovski would get screwed out of a title shot like that

im excited to see how the training at chute box affects werdum. if he could incorporate some really good muay thai and get that chute box aggressiveness he could really be someone to watch. his jits is as good as anyones in mma and he just needs to learn to not rely on it solely. could be a tough fight for gonzaga considering werdum's reach and how good he works off of his back.

i like both of these guys a lot and am excited for this fight.
