    Default Werdum will not compete at ADCC in China, begins training for UFC 166 title fight

    http://www.mmamania.com/2013/8/22/46...ng-ufc-166-mma

    Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) heavyweight Fabricio Werdum will be dressed to compete while providing commentary for the upcoming UFC 166 main event, a 265-pound title fight that pits reigning champion Cain Velasquez opposite ex-division titleholder Junior dos Santos.

    No, it's not a triple-threat match.

    But "Vai Cavalo" knows that anything can -- and usually does -- happen leading up to a major pay-per-view (PPV) event, and if misfortune should strike one of the UFC 166 headliners, who will bang it out on Oct. 19, 2013 at the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas, Werdum (via Sherdog.com) says he'll be ready and waiting.

    Literally.


    "I have three functions in the UFC: I'm a fighter, but I'm also a UFC commentator for Latin America since I lived a long time in Spain and speak fluent Spanish. Due to this I am an ambassador for the UFC in Latin America, where I travel explaining how the sport works. Commentating helps me even more to know my enemies, because I cover their fights. As I result of having these occupations I will not compete at the ADCC. Actually, I have to prepare myself to fight on Oct. 19. Of course we do not want anything to happen to anyone, but it happens from time to time. Injuries occur, anything can happen. I have to be ready. I will be cageside to call the fight, with my fightwear underneath. I'm ready for anything -- just call me to take my blazer off and go in."

    Fabricio Werdum Feels Junior Dos Santos Has Five Minutes To Finish Cain Velasquez
    "I think in the first round, Cigano has the power in his hands. If he gets a good punch, he'll win. But if it goes to the second round and past the second round, Velasquez will win a decision again."
