Werdum (24-9-1 MMA) and Dos Santos (21-10 MMA) originally collided at UFC 90 in October of 2008, with ‘JDS’ emerging victorious by way of first-round TKO in a fight that served as his promotional debut.

Now, almost fifteen full years later, the pair are set to square off again, this time under Jorge Masvidal’s ‘Gamebred Bareknuckle MMA’ fight banner.

Junior dos Santos will enter the contest with hopes of snapping his five-fight losing skid. The former UFC heavyweight champion has lost all five of his most recent fights by TKO, suffering those defeats to Francis Ngannou, Curtis Blaydes, Jairzinho Rozenstruik, Ciryl Gane and most recently Yorgan De Castro.

Meanwhile, Fabricio Werdum last competed under the PFL banner in May of 2021, where his bout with Renan Ferreira was ultimately ruled a no-contest. Prior to that controversial fight, ‘Vai Cavalo’ was coming off a first-round submission win over Alexander Gustafsson under the UFC banner in July of 2020.
