Former UFC stars Fabricio Werdum and Junior Dos Santos are still hot in the world of martial arts.
Because when the two met last weekend at Jorge Masvidal’s Gamebred Bareknuckle MMA tournament – without boxing gloves – things went badly between the two Brazilian heavyweight boxers.
Dos Santos hit Werdum with several powerful punches, resulting in a nasty cut over the latter’s left eye.
– His eye is broken, MMA website wrote Bloody elbow.
-Werdum’s eye cut was reported to have bled a lot in the third round espn.
– He claimed that his eyelid almost fell off New York Post.
But neither the cut nor the swelling caused the fight to stop. Therefore, the points awarded by the judges had to be decided in favor of dos Santos (28-29, 30-27, 30-27). Fortunately, Wardem did not suffer permanent damage to his eye.
Dos Santos (39 years old), who has not won since 2019, said: “This win was important for my career.
The match was held in Jacksonville, Florida.
This isn’t the first time Werdum has lost to dos Santos.
The two met back in 2008 at UFC 90 – which was also when dos Santos walked away with the victory.
Both were former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) heavyweight champions.
