Every now and again, everyone needs a break, especially if your profession involves savagely hitting others. Fabricio Werdum and a few other MMA veterans recently posted a funny video on social media in which they appear to be having fun and unwinding.
Fabricio Werdum, a former heavyweight champion of the UFC, recently uploaded a video of himself and a few other renowned Brazilian mixed martial artists. Lyoto Machida is being ragged by Mauricio Rua, Wanderlei Silva, and Fabricio in the video.

The three of them are shown in the clip attempting to coerce Lyoto into taking a boat ride. However, he responds negatively and gives his marital status as justification. (He makes the joke that he can’t go because his wife is waiting)

Fabricio Werdum will not play in the PFL in 2022 and is thinking about retiring
Werdum is a skilled grappler who won the title of undisputed UFC heavyweight champion in 2015 after defeating Fedor Emelianenko, Antonio Silva, and Mike Kyle in Strikeforce. In his second UFC run, Werdum recorded notable victories over Cain Velasquez, Mark Hunt, Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira, and Alexander Gustafsson. However, it looks like the MMA career of Fabricio Werdum could be over after all.
“Vai Cavalo” wasn’t on the PFL’s recently released heavyweight roster for the upcoming 2022 season. Werdum, one of the PFL’s top acquisitions for 2021, admitted to Ag. Fight that he’s thinking about retiring from fighting.
Werdum says to Ag. Fight, “It’s a bit complicated to say that to a fighter after 24 years of fighting. Even my wife keeps telling me to say I’m retired, that I’m done. I tell her I won’t say it. … But talking about MMA, I think it’s hard for me to come back because it’s more dedication, staying two, or three months in the United States, and I’m living in Brazil for a year and three months now. If there’s a boxing match, I’d do it.”
