Alistair Overeem Wants To Reveal Fabricio Werdum’s Weakness

Former Strikeforce, DREAM and K-1 champion, Alistair Overeem spoke on the recent title winning performance from Fabricio Werdum, also stating that he would like to face the newly crowned champion for a third time as he believes he can expose his weaknesses.

Overeem, speaking via sources, said:

“He’s the same guy, but he has evolved. I’ve evolved, too. And to answer your next question if I think I can beat him, yes, I do think I can beat him. I have been following his progress throughout the years and I can say that I am very hungry to fight him. I definitely do see weaknesses with him. He’s a great athlete, he’s doing great at the moment, but he has weaknesses and I feel I am the guy that can expose those.”

“[Werdum] has always been tricky, he’s always been persistent with his black belt in jiu-jitsu skills. But, now he truly is a stand-up warrior and he is an all-around MMA master. He has shown great stuff. The heavyweight division is entirely wide open now.”

“I fought Werdum and had an excellent performance, but I also don’t think Cain had a good performance. Usually, cardio is Cain’s weapon. But yeah, it looked like the high altitude was bothering him, and of course the ring rust. He didn’t fight in two years. So, it was something you could expect. Werdum is off a win streak, fighting every couple of months. Cain did not fight in two years, and I don’t think it’s clever to not understand the high altitude thing. Wrestlers in the U.S. know about that stuff, so maybe he underestimated it, I don’t know.”
