Fabricio Werdum will make his return to the UFC this weekend at UFC 143 and takes on Roy Nelson in a heavyweight match up in Las Vegas.
Werdum discussed the bout this week in an interview with Globo and discussed the keys to victory in the fight:
"I can tell you that he_ll need to keep his hands up, because a knockout might happen. He_ll need to keep his hands way up, in high guard. I think I_ll hit his legs a lot. Roy Nelson is very tough and can endure a lot of beating, he showed that against [Junior dos Santos], but there_s always a weak spot. I_ll try to look for that flaw during the fight. I think I will win with agility and mobility. I am well mentally, as well as physically, much faster and this will be determinant in this fight, due to the fact that he_s slower, a fatty. It will be a very strategic fight. It_s my return to the UFC, it will be very important to me. When I have the opportunity to KO or submit, I will do it. I don_t like to win by points, it happens sometimes, but my prevision is this: knockout or submission. The main thing is the victory."
