    “The important thing is that I’m fighting,”

    “I never had that option of picking an opponent. The UFC said it was Travis Browne, I said yes, signed the contract and sent it already. Whether it was Ben Rothwell or Derrick Lewis – it could have been anyone. I just wanted to fight at the same event as Miocic and Overeem.

    “I didn’t have an option. I saw Derrick Lewis say he’d fight me on twitter, but the UFC never brought him up. I told my manager, ‘I’ll fight anyone, I don’t care who it is.’ Browne was the chosen one and I was fine with it. I didn’t get to choose my opponent, which I’ve never done in the past either.”

    “The fair thing would actually be the rematch (against Miocic), because I’m the first in the UFC rankings and Miocic is the only one above me,” So you can’t really say anyone else is ‘fair.’ The important thing is fighting a top-10. So there’s not much to say. I think Browne has a strong name, he’s well-known, I fought him once and I think I have a slight advantage because I won. I won’t rely on that thought too much, though, because I know there are no easy fights in the UFC.”“I expect a similar fight,” But I’ll try to submit him or knock him out. I think that’s what every fighter wants, everyone wants to finish the fight as soon as possible. I don’t think people want to win on points – it’s very difficult to see anyone saying, ‘I’ll win via decision.’“First minute, second round, as soon as I can. But we’ll try to put on a fight like we did last time, a bout that many people say was the best of my career.”“Since I’m the first in the UFC rankings, I think a win will give me the opportunity to fight for the belt,”
    “I think it will be important how this fight goes down. It’s important that I finish as soon as possible, put on a spectacular fight like the last one.

    “That should give me this chance to fight for the belt. I know Velasquez is also waiting for the opportunity. Everyone wants that, but I think I’ll show once again that I am the No. 1 in the ranking and have this opportunity again. It will depend on how it goes.”

    “I lost the belt, but that’s done,” “I can’t keep thinking about it, thinking about how the belt was. I made it once and I am sure I will make it again. That’s a certainty. I know the way now. I just need to get it right again.”

    He's gets to make a name off Browne twice. That's like 2 names.

    The only fair thing would be a rematch with Miocic? The only fair thing happens to be an immediate title rematch for a champ who got flattened, and never had a title defense? I don't think so. Love Werdum, but I don't agree that he deserved an immediate rematch.

    LOL @ Werdum thinking he should get an instant title fight. Rankings don't work that way trollface.

    Its your popularity that earns you title fights, not your stupid ranking. Ask Aldo, Jacare, etc.

    Since Cain just beat Browne, he would be a better match up for the winner of Miocic Reem, seeing as it would be a new fight.

    You're looking at this all wrong... The upside is that we get to see tarvis berne lose again

    Never thought I'd be rooting for Mr. Rousey. But I can't fucking stand Werdum and his trollface.
