Fabricio Werdum offers to coach TUF: Mexico opposite Cain Velasquez
Speaking to MMAWeekly .com, after his submission victory over 'Big Nog' ,Fabricio Werdum has put it out there, he would like to coach TUF 'Mexico' alongside UFC Heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez .
During the interview he said:
“I mentioned about doing an Ultimate Fighter in Mexico. For those who don’t know, I am a commentator for the UFC in Spanish because I can speak in Spanish as a commentator because I lived many years in Spain. I gave the idea to the UFC about doing an Ultimate Fighter against Cain Velasquez in Mexico.”
“I don’t know if he’s going to beat Junior dos Santos. It’s going to be a good fight. I’m going to be there, observing both of them. I have to wait for both of them to fight. I’ve already spent one year without fighting because I did The Ultimate Fighter in Brazil, so I wouldn’t like for that to happen again, but if the UFC says, ‘Wait Werdum, wait a little bit more. Do The Ultimate Fighter and then fight the champion,’ I’ll definitely wait. And I’ll be working out to become the champion.”
“I think it’s a great idea to be able to show a little bit of our sport in Latin America because Latin America is lacking our sport. And I think it would be something very good to be able to get all this audience because if it’s an audience that likes it, it’s very easy. We need to go after those that don’t know our sport.”
