Fabricio Werdum Says UFC Contacted Him After Fedor Win
Fabricio Werdum shocked the world when he defeated Fedor Emelianenko last summer, handing the Russian his first legitimate loss, and following the win, Werdum says that he was contacted by a familiar former employer about his contract status:
"Now I can say, right? (laughs) Joe Silva told me to call him as soon as I was ‘free’, to call him to negotiate, but now we’re at the same home again. ... Strikeforce was doing well, growing strongly, but let’s face the facts, the UFC is the best of the world, a stronger brand… You have to unite with the best."
