"Nogueira is a very good guy. I like him. He is a good friend of mine. For sure I will fight with him on June 8, but like a professional. I want a chance for the title. I will fight 100-percent with him and I want to step up to the front, because a loss is three steps down."
Streaking Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) heavyweight contender Fabricio Werdum struts his stuff ahead of his upcoming rematch against Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira, scheduled for Saturday, June 8, 2013 at Ginasio Paulo Sarasate in Fortaleza, Ceara, Brazil. "Minotauro" edged out "Vai Cavalo" via unanimous decision under the PRIDE FC banner back in 2006; however, Werdum is 8-3 since that initial encounter and the winner of two straight. Nogueira, on the other hand, is 6-4 and despite only a year's difference in age (cough), "Big Nog" has a lot of extra miles on his tires, having been both knocked out and submitted. Will history ultimately repeat itself? Or will this finally bring about the end of a legendary career?
