• Former UFC Heavyweight Champion Trying To Negotiate A Deal With WWE, Wants To Work For WWE & UFC At The Same Time
During a recent interview with MMA Fighting, former UFC Heavyweight Champion & currently ranked #3 UFC Heavyweight Fabricio Werdum noted that he’s trying to negotiate a deal with WWE and that he wants to work for both WWE & UFC at the same time.
Below is what he said:
“I think that both (at the same time) is doable. You can do WWE. If I had the opportunity I’d fight there, no problem. It’s financially great. Fight at WWE, a spectacle that is fun to do. I’d definitely do it. I have a meeting Thursday about it, doing both (UFC and WWE). I want to fight, doesn’t matter where.I’ll have this meeting Thursday in San Diego to see if something happens with WWE. It’s cool, a unique opportunity to do a few fights there as well. People think it’s easy, but it’s not. You have to be well trained to do those jumps, you have to be agile. It’s not easy as some people might think. It’s quite complicated. You have to be well trained and practice a lot to captivate the audience.I’m fluent in Spanish, so I can do a character that speaks Spanish. That would be cool. I’d really like to have this opportunity to do this and captivate the Latin audience because they really love WWE. I’d be thrilled to do a fight there, or more, or a contract, because there’s no problem with the UFC since it’s not a real fight, it’s more of a show.”
