Now Entering Russ's World
Cain Velasquez took on Fabricio Werdum in the main event of the UFC 188, and their battle was one of the most highly anticipated heavyweight fights in years. Nonetheless, some people feel that the actual fight didn’t live up to the hype, but I beg to differ. Cain Velasquez came out early, and he landed some heavy strikes onto the chin of Fabricio Werdum. Somehow, Fabricio withstood all of the strikes that Cain Velasquez landed on him, and it was quite obvious that Cain was in for a long night.
Fabricio Werdum became the only man in history to tap out Fedor Emelianenko and Cain Velasquez. Fabricio is now the undisputed UFC heavyweight champion. However, I have a feeling that Cain Velasquez will be back sooner rather than later. It should also be noted that Cain Velasquez did not fight for two years, and he definitely showed some signs of ring rust. Yahoo!
