Fabricio Werdum vill bli släppt från sitt UFC-kontrakt
Fabricio Werdum är onekligen en av de bästa tungviktarna någonsin. Han var den förste någonsin att besegra den till synes oslagbare Fedor Emelianenko via triangel i första ronden.
När han senare dessutom erövrade UFC:s tungviktstitel är det omöjligt att prata om “den bäste någonsin” utan att nämna Werdum.
I en nylig intervju med Portal Vale Tudo (transkriberad av MMAFighting) sade Werdum att han gärna vill bli släppt från sitt kontrakt så att han kan fightas i andra organisationer.
”My idea is to do the right thing, which would be rescind my contract with the UFC,” sade Werdum. “Ali is a manager that defends us really well. He has a lot of famous fighters, many people, and to me he’s the best manager right now, the one with the best direct contact with the UFC.”
”What I would really like right now is to be free, that the UFC would have consideration with me and release me,” fortsatte Werdum “It’s a matter of Ali talking with (White) now. Ali really has a good friendship with Dana White. It’s not only up to Dana. They always say that, and I go talk to someone else and they say it’s not only up to them as well, it’s that game. I obviously love fighting in the UFC, but after this (situation), this unfair doping, I would like to fight in other promotions.”
“I already told the UFC, I’ll sign a term that I would not fight in the United States anymore,” avslutade Werdum. “I’d fight overseas, Japan, Russia, Europe, wherever, but I wouldn’t fight in the United States to cause no harm. I would sign that to be released. I just want to be free to do what I want, which is fight. It’s not about money. I still have a lot to show. I’m 41, but I feel like a kid.”
