"When I'm fighting with Overeem, I'm not sure, because I never stopped training, but two times the fight was canceled. I don't stop training. Normally guys train two months, three months for camp, I'm training six-seven months. For sure I was overtraining. With Overeem, I had no power, I was tired. I have the opportunity now [in UFC] to fight Overeem again because now, he win one time, I won the other time in PRIDE. I submit him, he don't submit me, just decision. I want this fight. Maybe not now, but one day."
UFC turned Strikeforce turned UFC fighter Fabricio Werdum is finally returning to the Octagon as he prepares for a 265-pound showdown opposite Roy Nelson at UFC 143 on Feb. 4, 2012, at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada. "Vai Cavalo" hopes to get back "in the mix" with a victory over "Big Country" but more importantly, a "Sin City" win over the Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 10 champ gets him one step closer to a trilogy with Alistair Overeem, who took the Brazilian to an uninspired decision earlier this year in Strikeforce. Anyone want to see these two settle their score? Or not so much?
