Fabricio Werdum returned to the Octagon at UFC 143 on Saturday in Las Vegas, and what a homecoming he had.

Not only did Werdum step back in the Octagon, he also scored the win, taking home a unanimous decision over Roy Nelson. Not only did he score the win, he and Nelson walked away with the Fight of the Night honors, each earning an extra $65,000 bonus for their efforts.

After a lackluster affair with Alistair Overeem in his most recent previous bout, Werdum gave a good accounting of himself and his improved Muay Thai skills at the Mandalay Bay Events Center.

Check out what Werdum had to say when he met with the media at the UFC 143 post-fight press conference…

  • I think we’ll see Mir vs Werdum next.

  • Lesnardo

    Mir vs Werdum makes the most sense. I put my money on Werdum on that fight. I think he could put Mir away the same way he put away Gonzaga.

    However, JDS would be way too much for Werdum. In their previous bout, JDS did not manhandle Werdum, although KOed him pretty clean. But JDS may be too fast and strong for Werdum who tends to be sluggish at 246.
