Fabricio Werdum 767SF-478x270UFC heavyweight contender Fabricio Werdum wants to wait for the winner of champion Cain Velasquez and former titleholder Junior dos Santos.

UFC Tonight recently reported the 36-year-old’s desire to wait for a title shot.

Werdum (17-5-1) has won his three fights in the UFC since returning to the organization in February 2012, defeating Roy Nelson, Mike Russow and former champion Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira.  The Brazilian also has notable wins over Fedor Emelianenko, Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva and Alistair Overeem.

Werdum last competed on June 8, and expects to be back in action in February or March, but has no problems waiting a bit longer for a title shot.

Velasquez and dos Santos fight for a third time at UFC 166 on Oct. 19 at the Toyota Center in Houston.  They split their two previous meetings.

Dos Santos knocked out Velasquez to capture the heavyweight title on Nov. 12, 2012.  Velasquez avenged the loss and regained the title at UFC 155 on Dec. 29 in a dominating, one-sided unanimous decision win.

Dos Santos and Werdum have history.  Dos Santos knocked out Werdum at UFC 90 in October 2008.  It was dos Santos’ UFC debut and Werdum was let go by the organization following the loss.
