Lol I don't get this, Wedum has been looking up lately why give him someone like Russow. The guy's obviously one of the top heavyweights in the world there's no reason for him to be fighting Mike Russow

I'm with you, lol. I saw this and said, "what the fuck?" Werdum is coming off wins over Bigfoot, Nelson, and Fedor with his only loss coming to Overeem since dos Santos. How the fuck did he draw Russow while Nelson drew Bigfoot?

I think Russow is good, but maybe they're rewarding Russow more than they're "punishing" Werdum.

I did some research while making this post and I pretty much decided that they have to be rewarding Russow. He's 15-1-0-1 in his career with his only loss coming to Kharitonov. He's also 4-0 in the UFC with 2 stoppages.

The armbar that Kharitonov got Russow with wasn't anywhere near as technical as what Werdum does on the regular.
