Fabricio Werdum uninterested in rematch, slams ‘sleazy’ and ‘dishonest’ Ferreira for fake tap

Former UFC heavyweight champion Fabricio Werdum is coming back from retirement, but has no interest in a rematch with his last opponent.

After facing fellow Brazilian Renan Ferreira back in May 2021 and originally losing by TKO, ‘Vai Cavalo’ got the win overturned when footage showed ‘Problema’ tapping out to a triangle choke early in the fight. For that reason, Werdum prefers not to take on a fighter he now considers to be ishonest.

In an interview with Ag Fight, Werdum explained he does not wish to find himself in a situation similar to the first one again.
