    Can't really take what this guy says seriously, he's a joke maker. I dont think he would retire so soon.

    If he wins both of those, I could see him going out on top.

    Werdum is bored. Maybe Cain can bring his A game next time.

    I take him seriously. He jokes around but he's extremely intelligent and definitely has his finances in order.

    Werdum is a smart guy, he knows his physical skills are only going downhill from now on. I believe he won't have many fights before retirement. And I hope he does that as a champ.

    Werdum's striking seems to have improved since this vid in 2011...wonder how Wand would do against Cain in a straight standup fight (not at sea level haha):



    would have to see him retire so soon, but he's no spring chicken.

    Several active fighters are also analysts, where does he mention retirement?

    I'd like to see him try to avenge his loss to JDS before he retires.

    sigh...

    TS, you are leaving out the fact that he said it jokingly. It says very clearly in the interview that he said that while laughing, aka most likely just fooling around as always.

    maybe you could include that in your translation, because the title is deceiving IMO.

    It was brought and didn't receive a passing grade!

    That's some hard sparring, Werdoom was close to being knocked out.

    It really shows how much he improved in the last few years, Cordeiro is an amazing coach.

    I remember seeing an interview where he said if he beat Velasquez in Mexico he would retire on top with the belt.

    So if he really is hinting it, I'm sure its a joke.

    hinting to people every like 6 months or so that you're considering retirement while champiom will sell more IMo

    Why? He's 38, he'd be 39 or 40 by then. Pretty reasonable time to retire.

    We know it wasn't, Cain gassed because he didn't account for the altitude properly.

    With that said, Werdum beats sea level Cain.
