After Saturday night’s final plot twist, however, it turned out Fabricio Werdum was the hero of this story all along. Despite some dicey early moments, Werdum was always the more complete MMA fighter here. He weathered Hunt’s best stuff in the first round and then caught him with a perfectly timed knee in the second, forcing the referee to halt an onslaught of punches and read news >>
