According to a article by Brazilian MMA site Tatame, Fabricio Werdum doesn’t even know that he has been cut by the UFC:
"I'm surprised by the news. My sister is my manager and she's the one that deals with the UFC and she always contacted me first before making any decision. From what I know the UFC have not contacted her. I still have four more fights left on my contract that runs until 2010. From what they told me I should fight in February, July, November and April of 2010. In fact, I'm moving to the US to prepare for those fights with Rafael Cordeiro." said Werdum who is still making final arrangements to make his move to USA in December.
Thanks to a translation by Robert K at Bet WWX via MMA Frenzy. This is the first time [since Cro Cop but that was amicable] that I’ve have heard of the UFC parting ways with a guy with an existing contract. The MMA Weekly article stated that Werdum had already started looking for other promotions but in this new interview its clear that he doesn't even know if he has been cut by the UFC. On the other hand his profile has been removed from the UFC website:
Sorry, The person's information you requested is not available at this time.
In July it was widely reported that Werdum had signed a new five-fight contract with the UFC.
