    When Werdum fights Ben Rothwell at UFC 203, it will have been less than four months since he got flat-lined by Stipe. I always thought that the general consensus was to wait at least six months after being knocked completely unconscious. Machida and Mendes made quick turnarounds after TKO losses and ended up being KOd in their next fights. Plus Werdum fights at heavyweight and Rothwell hits incredibly hard. What are your thoughts/

    Nah dude he's fine. Waiting another month or two wont make Rothwell's punches any less harder. If he get's knocked out in this fight, it's because he got punched in the face.

    How much longer do you think he should wait? It will have been like 4 months since by the time he fights again.

    I'd rather be in Werdum's position (being flash KO'ed) then Rothwell's position (5 rounds of doing his best punching bag imitation against JDS).

    certainly is a quick turn around for him.

    Yeah, you see it a lot when fighters come back too soon they get shut off much easier again. I don't blame him for wanting to get back in there though after that performance.

    He shouldn't get caught by Rothwell no matter what. I see what you're saying but getting punched in the head by Ben is likely to lose you a fight no matter what.

    I'm concerned about other things like why my tots weren't cooked fully.

    Curious to see how Werdum's chin is from now on...whether the off button has been rewired to be more touch-sensitive.
