Fabricio Werdum calls out Brendan Schaub: 'Anytime, anywhere'

One time UFC contender and current Strikeforce heavyweight Fabricio Werdum is doing all he can these days to try and get an invite back to the big show.

Including calling out Brendan Schaub.

"Vai Cavalo" was last seen in action (or lack thereof) this past June against then-Strikeforce heavyweight champion, Alistair Overeem. "Demolition Man" went on to win the fight via unanimous decision in what was a very lackluster affair.

Since then, Overeem has vacated his title and left for greener pastures to the UFC. Seeing as how there are fewer heavyweight challengers these days in Strikeforce, Werdum is looking to do the same.

Via his twitter page, Werdum is already mapping out his assault on the UFC heavyweight division, and it starts with Schaub.

"Brendan Schaub, I’m ready for you. Anytime, anywhere. Great fight for the UFC fans."

Werdum went an even 2-2 with the UFC in his first go-round with the promotion, but was released of his duties when he refused to negotiate with the UFC for a smaller contract after his loss to Junior Dos Santos. He went on to earn a 3-1 record with Strikeforce and became the first man to legitimately defeat the great Fedor Emelianenko.

Brendan Schaub was last seen in August at UFC 134 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. It was not his greatest hour as he was on the receiving end of a knockout loss courtesy of Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira. The loss halted "Hybrid’s" four fight win streak and sent him tumbling down the heavyweight rankings.

What do you say Maniacs, is this a good fight for Werdum’s return to the UFC?

 If so, who takes it and how?
