Former UFC Heavyweight Champion, Fabricio Werdum in an interview with MMAFighting had originally disclosed that he’s trying to strike a deal with WWE as he desires to work with both UFC and WWE at the same time.
The 40-year old Brazilian fighter said, “I think that both (at the same time) is doable. You can do WWE. … If I had the opportunity I’d fight there, no problem. It’s financially great. Fight at WWE, a spectacle that is fun to do. I’d definitely do it. I have a meeting Thursday about it, doing both (UFC and WWE). I want to fight, doesn’t matter where.”
Werdum had further revealed that he will be meeting with a WWE official on Thursday.
However, the UFC Fighter took to Twitter today morning and declared that it wasn’t WWE but Lucha Libre in Mexico that he is eyeing to work with.
Hey guys to make it clear I spoke about maybe doing Lucha libre in México. Not WWE. I meant wwe style(pro wrestling) but I am a @ufc fighter and my focus 100% is fighting in the ufc and whatever decision I make after my fighting career @danawhite @Mickmaynard2 will be involved.
