Werdum moving on and to the US

http://www.tatame.com/2008/10/27/Fabricio-Werdum

Seems to be taking the loss well and him moving to the US IMO is a great thing because it opens up the chance for him to train with a lot more gyms.

Training out of Chute Boxe USA where guys like Bisping and Rampage have spent some time training should be good for him because Chute Boxe in Brazil doesn't have many big names left.

I think Werdum will be back and make an impact it was a horrible situation for him and the worse thing happened.

Do you still think that him gaining 20 pounds was a smart idea and that he would be much better at that weight?

I don't know I don't think that had much to do with it. I would like to see how he looks on the ground and his speed on the ground because his striking didn't look much different then usual his chin just usually can take a lot of shots.

His body looked nasty, hopefully his gym will have a couple of treadmills.

Dude may be one of the most talented BJJ guy, but he got smoked by a complete unknown. Junior was definitely the better striker, and it'll take a while to see how big of a loss this one.



TEAM LORD:
1. Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira
2. Nate Marquardt
3. Goran Reljic
4. Amir Saddolah

RANKING: TBA
TOTAL POINTS: +TBA

You were so close to having your prediction come true, my heart weeps for you bbjd lol.

Werdum will be back though, and hopefully he tidies up his stand-up some more. He looked more like the Werdum that fought Arlovski, than the one who whomped Brandon Vera and Gonzaga.

Until he loses some excess fat, he shall be known as Flabricio Werdum (to me anyways) lol.

That didnt look like good weight that he gained. He looked like he gained weight by eating 20 fried twinkies a day.

Yeah he didn't look very good, and the move stateside can only help his UFC career.

I hated this fight even when they announced it as Fab-doom was promised a title shot then shoved out of the way for the HW tourney. I've always hated these "treading water" fights against unknowns- the name fighter has practically nothing to gain except staying right where he is with a win. A loss is devastating- give props to Dos Santos but Fab-doom will be back and hopefully when he does he won't get screwed over again.
