Undefeated in four trips to the Octagon and maintaining a 15-1 overall professional record, Mike Russow still never seems to be the favorite heading into a fight. He most certainly isn’t the favorite as he prepares for Fabricio Werdum at Saturday’s UFC 147 in Brazil.
But that’s okay by Russow, he’s happy to be the underdog. It puts all the pressure on his opponent, leaving him with nothing to do but make big plans.
“I want to take Fabricio out,” Russow said in a recent UFC interview.
Doing so would not only surprise several pundits, but also immediately propel him into the upper echelon of the UFC heavyweight division.
