Fabricio Werdum Armbars Fedor!

As you all know, I'm not a huge follower of MMA, but when legends meet, you gotta watch it!

I love Fedor for many reasons, but Werdum is just of such a high caliber and he went in with a BJJ / Grappling mindset and caught him. It doesn't take away from Fedor, but it really did warm my heart to see a very technically tight submission win the day.

It's also worth mentioning that Werdum moved away from Brazil as kid with nothing but a blue belt in BJJ training-wise. He moved with his mom to Madrid, Spain and ended up training with Judo. Yes he went back to Brazil every year and worked some BJJ / Grappling there but that's hardly regular training. It just gives us a lot of hope. It also goes to show you don't need a Black Belt world champion instructor all the time to achieve greatness. You need to train smart and to have high work ethics.

Wow. I hadn't see the fight, only read about it online, but Werdum held that triangle for a while and looked like he had a nice arm bar as well.

Congrats to Werdum and thanks for posting the vid Liam!
