He needs to lose some weight (although I don't think it was a factor in him losing the fight), work a lot on his stand up, and actually do what he does best which is submit people. I think he was getting ahead of himself there and got a bit overconfident in his striking ability.

Even though I like dos Santos as a Nogueira student I was pretty sad that Werdum lost. He deserved to be fighting for the title in the tourney and got screwed. But I hope he comes back strong and gets his shot and I think he will.



Gonzaga vs dos Santos - UFC on VS
Vera vs Jones - UFC on VS
Bibs vs Hansen - Dream 13
GSP vs Hardy - UFC 112
Gomi vs Florian - UFN 21
Nelson vs Struve - UFN 21

I think it was too soon to tell how well Werdum performed with the extra weight, seeing as Junior punched his head off in, like, a minute.

Glad to see Werdum taking the loss like a pro and trying to better his skills. He'll come back better than ever. He usually does after he loses.

So, so, so sad to see Werdum get finished.

The thing that pissed me off most about Werdum getting caught was that I had just got done telling my friends that he could possibly be the next champ when he finally gets his shot.

At least it wasn't Big Nog. That would be a sad day in MMA if Big Nog got knocked out.

Werdum will be back. It was a little speed bump but fortunately for him, the heavyweight division isn't that competitive so it shouldn't take too long for him to get back on track.

Any have an interview on why he gained so much. He looked sleek against Gonzaga. He just looked really out of shape for this fight. Werdum is dope though. He'll bounce back.

This poor fellow. A few weeks ago I'd say he should be fighting for the title. Now hes KOed by some unknown and out of the picture for a title shot :*(

sigh* i guess its better to see what hes made of before hes a champ, imagine if he would have been brutally KOed with the belt around his waist.
