Fabricio Werdum wants to fight the best in the world with Affliction

Quote:
When I first heard the rumours, I didn’t know anything. I had four more fights left with them on my contract, which ran to 2010. But they demanded to renegotiate my exiting contract by cutting my pay in half…. It’s a pity I would have liked to continue with the UFC but now we forge ahead…. There are several possibilities now including fighting in multiple organizations. Affliction, Sengoku and Dream are big events, but I think the possibility of fighting for Affliction in particular will give me the best chance to fight the best in the world, Fedor, in addition to (Andrei) Arlovski, Josh Barnett and several other big names … that would be a great opportunity for me”"

Fabricio Werdum — who was cut after losing to Octagon newcomer Junior “Cigano” Dos Santos via first round knockout at UFC 90: “Silva vs. Cote” at the Allstate Arena in Rosemont, Ill., on October 25 — talks about where he wants to fight in the future. The consensus top ten heavyweight fighter was surprisingly cut after his latest lost. In fact, it was such a surprise that he didn’t even know it when the news broke. He should fit in well with Affliction … its heavyweight roster is very deep and talented.

Weak, right when the HW division looked like it was going to be back on track, they lose one of their top 3 guys. Awesome job Zuffa.

Even though I am still kind of upset that he got released, I wouldn't mind seeing some of the fights he can have in Affliction.

You couldn't care less that the best Jitz guy at HW is gone??

The Arlovski fight was boring yeah but then he finished Napao and made Vera look pretty bad (even though the stoppage was kinda early) and he got caught and finished against Dos Santos.

TBH I bet Dana couldn't wait to get rid of him, I mean he doesn't want a world class Jitz fighter near the top of the HW division with Brock as champ supposing he somehow gets through Nog.

Werdum is a great ground guy but he seemed like he let himself go he was out of shape in his last fight.

He put that weight on deliberately apparently, I'm not sure why though as he was always a fairly big HW at about 240ish.

He just looked fat, Werdum at 255 and in shape is a scary prospect for any HW IMO however in that condition he just looked really pudgy.

Werdum needs to go to Affliction because as badly as I wanted to see Nogueira vs Werdum 2. Werdum vs Barnett is probably a better match up. And I think him fighting Fedor, Sylvia, or rematching Arlovski with his new found attacking style would be good.

So one of the best HW's in the ufc looses and then the ufc try and cut his pay in half, what bastar*s. I hope eventually theres a fighters strike and the ufc fiunally realises it cannot treat ppl like shi* and get away with it
