Fabricio Werdum has fought across the globe. He rose to prominence under the Pride FC banner in Japan. He truly left his mark on the sport by becoming only the second fighter to defeat Fedor Emelianenko before moving on to become a UFC heavyweight champion.
Having left the UFC after defeating Alexander Gustafsson in 2020, Werdum is on a mission to once again become a champion, this time under the Professional Fighters League banner. Fabricio Werdum makes his promotional debut opposite Renan Ferreira on May 6, 2021, at PFL 3 for the start of the 2021 season.
