UFC News: Fabricio Werdum to Fight at UFC 90

Fabricio Werdum has signe d a5 fight extension with the UFC which includes a guaranteed title shot if he wins one more fight.  It looks like Werdum will return at UFC 90 and fight Junior dos Santos.  A win would assure he would fight the winner of Mir vs. Nogueira in 2009 sometime.  I think Werdum is past being well deserving of a title shot.  It was my understanding that he was going to get the title shot following his win over Gabriel Gonzaga.  Then I thought for sure beating Brandon Vera would secure him a title shot.  However, the UFC gave the shot to Mir and put him on as a TUF coach.  Mir is a better TV personality, but Werdum is the one who deserved that, sorry.  The UFC got this one wrong.  Thankfully Werdum should get past Santos and get his title shot, but best case scenario he will wait until March or April of 2009 to get that shot.
