Former UFC Heavyweight Champion Fabricio Werdum is fighting Alistair Overeem for the third time at UFC 213.
When it comes to his opponent in Overeem, the Brazilian feels that the fighter has a weak chin at best.
“We know Overeem doesn't have that good of a chin now, so I'll focus on it. Sometimes you'll throw a kick or a punch and wherever it lands, that's it. So I'll really focus on his chin, now. I know he'll go down,” Werdum said to Combate.
Werdum won the first meeting between the two at PRIDE FC: Total Elimination Absolute in May 2006, while Overeem won the rematch at Strikeforce: Overeem vs. Werdum in June 2011.
With UFC 213 less than a month away, the former UFC Heavyweight Champion in Werdum feels well prepared for the rubber match against Overeem.
"There's practically just one month to go before the fight. I'm well prepared. I feel really good. As usual, I've been training with master Rafael Cordeiro at Kings MMA. It's hard to ask a fighter, so close to a fight, how he feels and hear him say he feels just okay. It's normal for us to feel good, and true. It's my third fight against Overeem, it's going to be close. I surely will have to be focused so I don't make any mistakes,” says Werdum.
UFC 213 takes place on Saturday, July 8 from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada with Amanda Nunes and Valentina Shevchenko headlining. Fightful is providing live coverage of the event, with a post-show podcast to follow.
