Sydney – prevails that the winner of the UFC 218 Showdown next month between Alistair Overeem and Francis Ngannou will lead the line for the heavyweight champion Stipe Miočić.
Fabricio Werdum looks at things differently
“I think I deserved it,” Werdum said at MMAjunkie in Sydney on Wednesday.
When Werdum (22-7-1 MMA, 10-4 UFC) says it deserves it, of course, it assumes to beat Marcin Tybura (16-2 MMA, 3-1 UFC) at the FS1 main event UFC Fight Night 121 is in Saturday at bank Qudos Bank. Preliminaries are broadcast in FS1 followed by an initial introduction to the UFC Fight Pass.
From May last year, when he lost his title to Miocic, Werdum got upset with losses and wins, and this includes and decreed the majority decision that Overeem was in UFC 213 in July. However, Werdum recently posted Walt Harris last month, submitting it for 65 seconds in UFC 216.
“It’s not just regarding my last brawl,” said Werdum, who is in second place in the official UFC rankings. “I mean everything in my job: 20 years of history, I do not know, I just wait.”
Ngannou (10-1 MMA, 5-0 UFC), officially at the 4th rank, recently announced on MMAjunkie Radio that he believed that winning No. 1 Overeem (43-15 MMA, 8-4 UFC) will surely win him the next opportunity for the title, a claim that Werdum probably does not agree with the relative inexperience of the Predator. Werdum, 40, will play his 15th UFC on Saturday. Overeem has five betting campaigns under his belt.
It would seem to be easier for Werdum to accept that they were passing through than through Ngannou
“I think I deserved it, too there is over, I do not know if Francis is there to fight for the title,” Werdum said. “I do not know, and I respect him, but I do not think he is (ready), maybe Overeem, yes, but I’m waiting too.”
