I'd still set up Overeem vs JDS
Posted 9/2/09 6:06:00AM
Werdrum is 7-2 in his last 9 fights with losses to JDS and a controversial and appalling fight with Overeem. He got out grappled but outstruck Overeem
His wins include Nelson, Bigfoot, Fedor, Gonzaga and has a fight lined up with Big Nog.
Does he deserve a title shot? His case could be strengthened with a win over a UFC vet such as Streuve or Carwin but his case is already pretty solid.
Is he stylistically interesting against the current champion? Getting better on the feet each time he's seen, outstriking Overeem, outpointing Bigfoot and putting on a Muay Thai clinic against Nelson puts him in the middle of the top 10 heavyweights for striking. His wrestling would be probably one of the worst in the top 10. His BJJ, will depend on the Big Nog fight but its safe to presume he's at least top 3 of the 10.
Cain Velasquez is an incredible wrestler but has only ever fought one guy comfortable on his back and when the fight ended up there it was already over. Wedrum doesn't just want to be there, he loves to be there and would love Cain in his closed guard.
The striking would be really interesting as Wedrum isn't going to be afraid to throw kicks and high kicks, he'll invite the takedown and Cain hasn't fought anyone who really wants him to grab it.
Is he marketable? Honestly.... Probably not, he's been around for ages the hardcores won't forget him especially with the win over Fedor but if they want to Market him they have to hope he speaks English on TUF Brazil and its aired in the US

Why would they run 2 separate interviews? They just subtitled the Vitor/Wandy season, and they subtitled some of the Smashes season (in which English was presumably spoken) so I don't see why they would not subtitle TUF Brazil 2
