LOS ANGELES – Former UFC Heavyweight Champion Fabricio Werdum held a media workout in Los Angeles on Thursday as he prepares to face fellow former UFC Heavyweight Champion Junior Dos Santos headlining Jorge Masvidal’s Gamebred Bareknuckle MMA on Friday, September 8 from VyStar Veterans Memorial Arena in Jacksonville, Florida. The event will stream live and for free on the Gamebred Bareknuckle MMA YouTube page.
Werdum will rematch Dos Santos in bareknuckle MMA after dropping their MMA clash years ago. For Werdum, this platform gives him a chance to avenge a significant defeat in his career and re-write the story of this rivalry in one night.
“I gotta make the most of this second chance,” said Werdum on Thursday at Wild Card Boxing Club. “I’m coming to inflict pain! This is a great opportunity for me and I’m doing everything I can to take advantage of it.”
