Fabricio Werdum returned to the Octagon at UFC 143 on Saturday in Las Vegas, and what a homecoming he had.
Not only did Werdum step back in the Octagon, he also scored the win, taking home a unanimous decision over Roy Nelson. Not only did he score the win, he and Nelson walked away with the Fight of the Night honors, each earning an extra $65,000 bonus for their efforts.
After a lackluster affair with Alistair Overeem in his most recent previous bout, Werdum gave a good accounting of himself and his improved Muay Thai skills at the Mandalay Bay Events Center.
