FUEL TV analysts Chael Sonnen and Brian Stann each offered up opponents for Fabricio Werdum following the Brazilians victory over Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira Saturday night.
“I want to see him take on the winner of Frank Mir and Josh Barnett,” Sonnen said.
Mir and Barnett square off this August. Mir was defeated by Daniel Cormier earlier this year, while Barnett will be returning to the UFC after an 11-year hiatus.
As for Stann, he said, “I’d like to see the winner of Travis Browne vs. Alistair Overeem. That’s an exciting match up.”
Browne and Overeem also fight in August. Overeem was the last man to defeat Werdum, earning a decision over him in Strikeforce.
As for the fighter himself, he mentioned waiting to see who emerges out of the planned third encounter between Cain Velasquez and Junior dos Santos for the UFC heavyweight title.
“I think if the UFC gave me the opportunity, for sure, I’d bring a lot now,” he said.
