UFC 198: Fabricio Werdum vs. Stipe Miocic Toe to Toe Preview - A Complete Breakdown - Bloody Elbow
Fabricio Werdum: UFC Heavyweight Champion. It still seems a strange thing to say. His eventual ascent to the top of the sport tells you something about how communicable certain aspects of fighting can be, like grit, work ethic, and even strategic nuance. He was a fantastic BJJ competitor, and eventually made his way to being an equally fantastic mixed martial artist. It just took a lot longer than we might have thought, and went through some strange twists and turns on the way.
