Fabricio Werdum vs Roy Nelson
Werdum is a really interesting story. A Brazilian that moved to Spain at 17 that went on to capture win Worlds twice at black belt. Think about that. He wasn’t training with at one of the big gyms in Brazil where he’d have the best partners, though he did go back to train once in a while. He went to Spain, where there was almost no BJJ scene, built his own team and eventually became a world champion, twice.
The 2x world champion and 2x ADCC champion will face Travis Browne this Saturday (April 19th) in a #1 contender’s bout to determine who faces Cain Velasquez in November.
