Last weekend Fabricio Werdum became the first fighter who managed to submit Cain Velasquez and thus he proved he is the absolute champion of the heavyweight division.
Werdum also defeated the legendary Fedor Emelianenko who had not lost the match in 10 years before that bout in 2010. However, Werdum claims that he is prouder on his victory over Velasquez and he offered him a rematch.
Werdum's coach Rafael Cordeiro is sure Velasquez stands no chance in the rematch.
"Werdum fights Cain Velasquez 10 times, he wins 10 times," Cordeiro said to MMAFighting. "I think people should stop finding explanations for results. If you lost, you lost, go back to the gym and train. It's a sport. Got a bad result? Train harder. The altitude was the same for everyone.
"The fight was announced and everybody knew they would have to deal with altitude, so go there one month earlier. But even if you go there one month before, that's now a guarantee that you're going to win. You have to be prepared to fight. We always believed in Werdum, and today he proved he's the best fighter on the planet."
