Authority always wins and so does the Sunday Morning Rumor Mill. Celebrate one of these on the seventh day of this great week.
- As everybody is well aware now, Robert Whittaker has been forced out of his bout against Jarod Cannonier at UFC 248. The headlines read that Robert pulled out of the bout for undisclosed reasons.
- However, Sunday rumors circulating lead us to believe that Whittaker’s child could be sick. Working on his family life, Whittaker has chosen to sit this one out. Probably until the family life is back on track.
- In addition to rumors, Fabricio Werdum is set to make his return to the UFC octagon. Part of the sped-up process was due to the“substantial assistance” clause in the UFC anti-doping policy that allows athletes to get reduced bans if they assist USADA in other cases.
- Who did Werdum snitch on? He denied all allegations that he “snitched” to get a reduced sentence.
- Nonetheless, rumors suggest that Werdum teamed up with Ali Abdelaziz to target one of the fighters managed by Malki Kawa. If any of Kawa’s fighters show up on banned lists in the near future, chances are it was Fabricio Werdum.
