    Rumored on Sherdog right now, thread starter has provided proof and shown one of Arlovski's training partners saying that AA will be fighting Werdum at 70.

    And before you think it is a 1 pic thing, there are 160+ of the guy training with AA and in Vegas with him.

    probably a bad match up...but i could see arlovski winning this one convincingly if he fought werdum a lot like sergei fought him...anyways i doubt this fight will happen...doesn't make sense to me

    Not really, it is kind of early if it is true

    at first i was skeptikal about werdum coming to the ufc.... then i thought, cro cop is in the ufc, he is cro cops BJJ coach.... but now im thinking.... why would they bring him in , when clearly AA and cro cop would be a good draw for the fans.... make s no sense, and i dont believe it until more evidence surface:dunno:

    yeah i also thought since crocop is in the ufc, and he trains with werdum, there is a good chance that werdum is being signed. Also UFC is really trying to establish their heavyweight division so who knows, maybe they did in fact sign him

    I hope they did sign Werdum, it would add some more depth to the heavyweight divisoin.

    I really like the direction the UFC is going with all the new talent.

    I think Werdun is a bad stylistic match up to AA, but it would be an exciting fight.

    AA is probably better than Aleks...less sloppy, appears more technical and devoted to his training

    Kind of concerned for my boy if this is turns out to be true. AA will have to step up that ground game something fierce or end it immediately like he ended Buentello, otherwise it will end badly.
