Interviews conducted by Matt Giancarlo with Jason Miller and Fabricio Werdum
Jason Miller
Q: What do you think that you can expose out of Jake Shields that others have not in his previous fights?
A: “There’s no mystery and no secret here. He likes to get guys to the ground, and dry-hump them into submission. That’s not gonna happen. I’m not gonna allow him to do that, I’m gonna make him fight at my pace – a rapid fire, non stop, aggressive pace. He’s not gonna be able to hang, he’s gonna get tired, and when he does I’m gonna capitalize.
Q: You went to the distance with Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza, a world class Jiu Jitsu fighter.  How do you feel that has helped you prepare for another submission artist such as Jake Shields?
A: “In that fight, I had to toughen a lot of things out. That was a great fight to teach me things about weathering a storm. That particular fight, I never succeeded but I don’t think I was training nearly as hard enough.”

Fabricio Werdum:

Q: How do you plan to deal with the size of Antonio Silva?
A: “I have faced people the same height, and trained with people just as big as him.”
Q: What are your thoughts on the rest of the Strikeforce dvision, and without looking past Silva, is there anybody specific that you would like to fight?
A: “The Strikeforce heavyweight division is full of a lot of great fighters. I would like an opportunity to fight Fedor Emelianenko after my upcoming fight.”
Q: How do you see this fight ending come Saturday?
A: “I plan on winning on Saturday by either submission or knockout.”
Q: Can you give a prediction on the main event?
A: “First round – Fedor by knockout”
