Fabricio Werdum: I imagine my next Strikeforce fight will be against Andrei Arlovski




"I must fight in February or March, and I imagine that it could be against (Andrei) Arlovski. I lost to him by 2-1, it was an ugly fight, nobody liked, but I never choose opponents, I can fight anyone, but then I wanna fight Fedor."

--Strikeforce heavyweight contender Fabricio Werdum talks about a possible rematch with Andrei Arlovski in his next fight for the San Jose-based promotion in Spring 2010. "Vai Cavalo" went three rounds with "The Pitbull" back at UFC 70 in a widely-panned bout that Arlovski won via ugly slap-attack. Werdum is still hoping to face Fedor Emelianenko in the near future, but it sounds like Strikeforce might have other plans for "The Last Emperor." Perhaps a rude welcome for the returning Alistair Overeem?
