Fabricio Werdum: It's my turn to fight Fedor

"It's my turn now. I have a lot of respect for Fedor. He is the best in the world. I already fought (Strikeforce Heavyweight Champion) Alistair Overeem in Japan. It's my turn to fight Fedor. I believe in my techniques and if it goes to the ground, I believe in my jiu-jitsu."

--Strikeforce heavyweight contender Fabricio Werdum, who has a 2006 submission win over current Strikeforce division champion Alistair Overeem, believes his Nov. 7 win over Antonio "Bigfoot" Silva earned him the right to face Fedor Emelianenko in his next bout. "Vai Cavalo," like many MMA fans and pundits, aren't convinced that "Demolition Man" is returning to the United States anytime soon to defend his belt and that the show must go on. But is facing "The Last Emperor," who notched his 27th straight win by stopping Brett Rogers on CBS, biting off more than he can chew?
