Fabricio Werdum: “Fighters Don’t Like Conor McGregor, He Sold His Soul”

UFC Heavyweight Champion Fabricio Werdum isn’t a fan of UFC Featherweight Champion Conor McGregor, a point he has made clear with a series of posts knocking the Irish UFC star on Instagram. Earlier this week, Werdum explained to MMAFighting.com why he refers to McGregor as a “prostitute.”

“Conor McGregor started well with his marketing, he talks a lot and is a great fighter, we can’t deny that, but I think he crossed the line. It’s too much now,” Werdum said. “He said he will fight anyone, but that’s not how things work in our world. Fighters have a code, a law, and you have to respect everybody. He lost this respect, talked about me at the MMA Awards, and he talked sh*t at the wrong person. I won’t stay quiet and just listen.”

Werdum continued, “Fighters don’t like Conor McGregor. Everybody likes watching him fight because he does a good marketing, but I won’t change who I am because of money. Everybody likes money, but there’s a limit. Money isn’t everything. He sold his soul – and I’m saying soul so I don’t say other things [laughs]. I don’t think that’s cool. He sold his soul. It was about time someone would shut him up.”

Fabricio Werdum returns to the Octagon to defend his UFC Heavyweight Championship against Stipe Miocic in the main event of UFC 198 on May 14, 2016 in Curitiba, Brazil.
