Fabricio Werdum: When I win the Strikeforce belt, I’m going to ask Dana to unify them

Strikeforce heavyweight contender, Fabricio Werdum has revealed that once he wins the Strikeforce heavyweight title he plans on asking UFC President, Dana White for a title unification match. A journey that starts when he faces the champion himself, Alistair Overeem this summer.

Werdum, speaking via GracieMag.com, said:

“I fought Fedor last June and won and now I’m fighting in June again and am going to win again. June is my month! I have the same feeling as before, I have the same training camp, the same guys, and the same energy. I’m training with pro fighters, Babalu, Shogun, Munoz, Miller, and others. Krzysztof Soszynski’s conditioning system is amazing! I’m just spending my life training.”

“Everyone told me it wasn’t possible. But it’s what I’ve wanted. Everyone said that Strikeforce and UFC were two different shows so it wouldn’t happen, but now with the Strikeforce UFC deal, it’s possible. When I win the Strikeforce heavy weight belt, I’m going to ask Dana (White) if I can try for the unification belt.”
