Quote :
While initially targeting either Stipe Miocic or Andrei Arlovski for UFC heavyweight champion Fabricio Werdum‘s first title defense, UFC officials have instead opted for an immediate rematch.

UFC president Dana White informed UFC Tonight that Werdum would put his belt on the line against the man he took it from, Cain Velasquez. A date and location for the fight have yet to be determined.

Werdum (20-5-1) first won a share of the heavyweight championship by defeating Mark Hunt for the interim version of the belt at UFC 180 in the promotion’s Mexico City debut. That bout occurred when Velasquez had to pull out of his originally scheduled title defense against Werdum due to a knee injury.

Velasquez (13-2) was finally ready to return to the Octagon for the first time in more than a year and a half when he and Werdum met at UFC 188 in June, the promotion’s return to the Mexican capital. Werdum needed just 12 minutes and 13 seconds to submit Velasquez via guillotine choke to unify the belts.

So let's see;
This will now make it 4 YEARS in which Velasquez has fought the SAME 3 PEOPLE!

What if he wins?? Does Werdum get a rematch, and we can go for 5 years of fighting the same 3 people? Fucking yay......

Yeah an easy Werdum win is the only thing that's going to break this cycle.

Then again, maybe if Velasquez does lose again, the UFC will give him a good stylistic match-up to get back in the win column and try to make another run.
I'm just trying to think who might be a good stylistic matchup for him, but who's ranked high enough to get him back into the title picture if need be. Maybe somebody he can trade shots with and use his hand speed to land a few good punches and keep control of the fight from there. And someone he can outwrestle if need be........

I know!! How about Bigfoot or JDS?!
