Rafael Cordeiro Says Fabricio Werdum Is In Talks With The UFC



“He’s back to the trainings, he’s making everybody laugh. He’ll probably fight in December… He’s talking to the UFC, and maybe they come up with something for December.  I like the idea, he deserves it.  In case it actually happens, UFC is the place he should’ve never left. The bests are there, and there’s where Werdum belongs.”

Kings MMA head coach, Rafael Cordeiro tells Tatame.com that Strikeforce heavyweight, Fabricio Werdum is in talks with the UFC.  Werdum has been fighting under the Strikeforce banner for the past few years, although he’s no stranger to the UFC, as his previous stint in the promotion saw him go 2-2 with wins over Brandon Vera and Gabriel Gonzaga.   Werdum was last seen during the Strikeforce GP, where he dropped a unanimous decision to Strikeforce heavyweight champion, Alistair Overeem.  Can Werdum return to the UFC and make an impact on an even deeper heavyweight division?
