Fabricio Wedum Looks To Move Forward Following UFC Release

It appears Affliction is now on the radar of one of the biggest names now on the MMA free agent market. Fabricio Werdum tells Tatame.com that although DREAM and Sengoku in Japan are viable options for the top ten ranked heavyweight, the most likely option for him will be Affliction:

“When I first heard the rumours, I didn’t know anything. I had four more fights left with them on my contract, which ran to 2010. But they demanded to renegotiate my exiting contract by cutting my pay in half…. It’s a pity I would have liked to continue with the UFC but now we forge ahead…. There are several possibilities now including fighting in multiple organizations. Affliction, Sengoku and Dream are big events, but I think the possibility of fighting for Affliction in particular will give me the best chance to fight the best in the world, Fedor, in addition to (Andrei) Arlovski, Josh Barnett and several other big names … that would be a great opportunity for me””
