If getting repeatedly arm-barred by a videogame character is a sign that your life is pretty much over, then I should borrow Arlovski’s gun and blow whatever brains I have left inside my head…directly out of my head. Fabricio Werdum is the reason why I will never beat UFC Undisputed in the heavyweight division. I want to rip UFC Undisputed out of my 360, smash the disc in pieces and bury them in the five corners of Scotland like they did William Wallace in Braveheart.
When Affliction Trilogy was on the verge of being scrapped, everyone was throwing Fabricio Werdum’s name around as possible replacement for the astrexied Josh Barnett. Just a few days later, Affliction collapsed and Werdum was left with an invalid ‘Redeem for shot against Fedor’ coupon. It was all good, Fabricio was sure that when The Last Emperor signed with Strikeforce he would defintely get that WAMMA title shot. Nah, the universe pointed its finger at Fabricio and ‘LOL’d directly in his face. Brett Rogers got the fight and Werdum…got Bobby friggin Lashley. It’s not confirmed yet but Lashley is expected to make his Strikeforce debut on Novemeber 7th and Werdum has just been confirmed for a slot on that card (possibly along with Bigfoot Silva). It’s all just heavily rumored speculation (yeah, it’s a ‘speculated rumor’) at the moment but we feed off that stuff like it’s some never ending, always satisfying MMA burrito (Burritos are a lot cooler than you think. You’ve worked hard this week, treat yourself to one). [Source]
