Critics also said Wedrum had no chance prior to the Fedor Emelianenko fight and welp, we all saw how that turned out.

"Werdum has what it takes to submit or knock Cain Vealsquez out. I don't agree when people say Werdum shocked the world against Fedor. There's no such thing in MMA. It's a fight and both fighters are ready. I won't be shocked when Werdum defeats Velasquez. I already expect that. We didn't want the Travis Browne fight, but Dana said he had to fight again before the title fight. We took the fight, and Werdum proved he's ready for anything. It's a dangerous match-up for Cain Velasquez. I'm not saying ‘Cigano' is not good, but I think that Velasquez's style is better for Werdum. We know that Cain Velasquez main weapon is his cardio, and Fabricio showed how good his cardio is now, that he has a great ground game and good takedowns. He's ready for everything. This is Werdum's moment. He will be the UFC champion. I don't see any result but the win."

Coach Rafael Cordeiro (via MMA Fighting) talks up heavyweight contender Fabricio Werdum, who will once again try to shock the world when he collides with Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) heavyweight kingpin Cain Velasquez, who puts his 265-pound title on the line in the main event of UFC 180, which takes place on Nov. 15, 2014 in Mexico City. That's right after Werdum and Velasquez finish up their duties as opposing coaches on The Ultimate Fighter (TUF): "Latin America," currently filming stateside in Las Vegas, Nevada. "Vai Cavalo" is already a +350 underdog against the sport's finest heavyweight, but knows a thing or two about upsetting the apple cart. Will you be "shocked" if the Brazilian brings home the gold? Let us know in the comments section below.
