UFC 147 takes place in Werdum's native Brazil. When the two tangle at Estadio Jornalista Felipe Drumond (also known as "Mineirinho"), a 25,000-seat arena in Belo Horizonte, Russow said he'll go into cruise control.

"Honestly, (fighting in hostile territory) really doesn't bother me," he said today. "I'm the underdog and glad all the pressure is on him. It doesn't bother me what the fans are doing. I really don't even hear my coaches after the ref says go, so that's not going to bother me at all."

I honestly think Russow has a good chance. Werdum doesn't have great takedowns and his standup isn't that great either. This is one of those fights where Russow has to weather the storm and wade through a few to land the big one and change the fight.
