The rivalry between Fabricio Werdum and Junior dos Santos is getting more heated everyday. After dos Santos accused Werdum of running from him and declining to fight him twice in less than a month, Fabricio decided to make a statement regarding the matter during an interview with Brazilian website Combate.
“Cigano is talking too much. I’m done with it, I want to make it clear I didn’t run from him. I’m a better fighter than him and I’m gonna be running? I’ve heard Miocic is in the middle of a contract dispute and is negotiating for more money, so I call ‘Cigano’ out for an interim title fight.”
“All you have to do is choose the right date, no late notice nor replacement fights, just you and me, if Miocic can’t fight. Because you have to remember I’m ranked number one and I’m due a fight against Miocic for the belt.”
