Eddie Wineland: The road back to the 135-pound title begins with the 'dangerous' Will Campuzano at WEC 49

Quoteworthy:

"I feel that I'm right where I need to be and right where I want to be. Big picture, big goal is that belt. And as long as I keep winning, they can't deny me that. Everybody's got the same goal in mind -- everybody's looking at that hardware. I think my experience will play a factor, but it's not his first rodeo. He's been in the gym. He's got a good understanding of what's going on. I'm really not overlooking the fact that he doesn't have 20-plus fights. He's got the experience, he's got the skills and that stuff's dangerous."

Former WEC bantamweight champion Eddie Wineland looks to reclaim the title he held ever-so-briefly from 2006-07. After knocking out Antonio Banuelos at WEC 20 to win the gold, he promptly coughed up the strap in his first title defense to Chase Beebe nearly 11 months later at WEC 26. The Duneland Vale Tudo product is 4-1 since his loss to "The Rage," and hopes to get back into contention by making a statement against Will Campuzano in Edmonton. Anyone think he's got the chops to do it?
