Former heavyweight champ Fabricio Werdum will reap the benefits of Mark Hunt’s drama with the UFC, because instead of Hunt headlining UFC Fight Night 122 this weekend in Australia (which is Hunt’s usual gig), Werdum gets to do it.
And since that means the Brazilian is fighting again after just barely a month ago, that extra paycheck is going to make the Werdum family’s Christmas extra special (hello new flatscreen TV for the living room!).
Anyway, Werdum. Jiu-jitsu master. Pretty okay striker at times. Elite heavyweight, and he gets Marcin Tybura on Saturday. Easy payday? Probably. But so what?
Here’s a refresher on what Werdum looks like kicking someone’s butt.
