White Says Next Fight For Werdum Will Be Miocic Or Arlovski

Fabricio Werdum’s first UFC heavyweight title challenger has yet to decided, according to UFC President Dana White.

During a Periscope Q&A session White held with fans he was asked who will be next for Werdum after his win against Cain Velasquez for the UFC heavyweight championship at UFC 188.

White said that while Junior dos Santos should be the No. 1 contender his current injuries will prevent him from figthting That means Werdum will face either Andrei Arlovski or Stipe Miocic.

These were White’s words:

“It’s either going to be Stipe or Arlovski, Dos Santos should get that fight, I agree. Dos Santos should get that fight, but he’s hurt. So he can’t take it. We haven’t made a decision yet, We’re still working on the heavyweight title fight. I know there’s reports out there that Arlovski has it, but that’s not true.”
