    On his fight against JDS, and how it changed him and his view on MMA and being a professional + intentions of rematch:

    TUF:

    Did my best with the translation! Werdum has often addressed this issue and how his loss against JDS basically changed his life as a professional and his approach towards training properly and never looking past an opponent. He overlooked him that time and, clearly, payed for it (inbeforeJDSkoingWerdum gif). Many might disagree, but he has improved a lot since then and I think a rematch would play very differently.

    With all that said: VAI CAVALO! I hope he beats Big Nog and gets a shot after Overeem (if he beats Bigfoot). Would deserve it IMO.

    no way Werdum faces Overeem if they both win. They wouldn't fight until fall and would leave Cain with no opponent. You don't leave the champion on the sidelines to make an unneeded #1 contender bout.

    More likely is Cain vs Overeem in May then the winner fights Werdum in the fall.

    Where did I say that? I meant that, if Werdum beats Minotauro he should get the shot after Cain/AO happens (if Overeem defeats Bigfoot, clearly).

    Werdum obviously has a lot of respect for Big Nog. Nice sportsmanship!

    Nice guy. Don't think he can beat JDS though. It'd be a repeat.

    Yeah probably this unfortunately, can't see him breaking into the JDS/Cain/AO territory, may be the best guy outside of those three though.

    Thanks MMABr. Sherdog should really look into having people like yourself to translate articles for them. That way we don't have to deal with trying to decipher GoogleTranslate stuff into English.
