Werdum: "The UFC is the best of the world"

Fabricio Werdum tapped Fedor Emelianenko to get the biggest win of his career at Strikeforce’s cage, but he didn’t hide the excitement when he heard the news about Zuffa purchasing Strikeforce. "Strikeforce was doing well, growing strongly, but let’s face the facts, the UFC is the best of the world, a stronger brand… You have to unite with the best", the black belt said, revealing that the UFC tried to sign him after he defeated Emelianenko, back in 2010. "Now I can say, right? (laughs) Joe Silva told me to call him as soon as I was ‘free’, to call him to negotiate, but now we’re at the same home again (laughs)", Werdum told TATAME.
