Fabricio Werdum 'for sure' wants to come back to the UFC (Video)

"I don't have nothing. I just have my contract with Strikeforce. But for sure, I want to come back to UFC for sure because UFC is the best event in the world. The guys give me a chance, for sure I'll come back."

A financial dispute combined with a crushing knockout loss to Junior dos Santos sent Fabricio Werdum packing from the UFC back in 2008. He immediately jumped to Strikeforce and ripped off three wins, including a first round submission win over Fedor Emelianenko. He may have recently lost an uninspired decision to Alistair Overeem just this past June but he's still a fairly high ranked heavyweight with plenty to offer the UFC. Anyone hoping he shows back up in the world's largest fight promotion sooner rather than later?
