Is Werdum's striking pretty weak? I'm looking up some of his old fight videos, and the ones I can find all he shows is good BJJ and wins by submission. In terms of striking, is Arlovski superior? Anyone have any links of fights that demonstrate Werdum's striking ability? From what I see, reminds me a lot of Royce Gracie (lanky, long arms, great groundfighting).

Werdum beat Aleks and hes a more of a decorated Sambo artist than AA. And how can you say Aleks has lost to almost everybody? Hes lost to Werdum, Barnett, and Cro Cop for gods sake.

To the above post. I would say Arlovki's stand up is pretty well superior to Werdums but Werdum is no slouch standing either.

I think this will be a very good fight that could go either way. AA could knock him out standing but if I had to bet on it I would say Werdum by submission.

14-1 in Forum Bets

Aleks has lost to everyone?? Are you outta ur mind, He lost by submission to the a BJJ world champ, lost by sub to Barnett(#4 HW) and to Crocop. Wow he has lost to real cans huh ...I should make you keep that avatar for life for making that silly comment. But really its been awhile you can take that avatar off if you want to.

I hope AA wins this, it will keep him back on track for a title shot down the road against cro cop!

Werdum has fought alot of great opposition:
Overeem
Lil Nog
A Emelianenko

Nice to see UFC beef up the HW div some more!

I still think AA has the ability to beat any of em. Cro Cop, Fedor, Sylvia etc. Thats just cuz i like the athletes. If he finds his balls though, he will definately beat werdum.

So hard to know what will happen. But definitely a big test for AA.

Not an easy road to a title shot at all.
