Fabricio Werdum Signs With PFL

Fabricio Werdum has money on the mind en route to the PFL.

Werdum has signed a contract with the Professional Fighters League, according to ESPN's Brett Okamoto. The former UFC heavyweight champion said it his "dream" to have the sort of activity that PFL promises him.

“It was a very good negotiation with them, and I know this event is getting very strong. I have fought for 23 years and this is my dream," he said. "I want to fight maybe twice in one night. I love the idea. You have one fight, you win, you go again."

“Maybe this (coming) year, 2021, I fight four or five fights," Werdum continued. "This is my dream. In the past, sometimes, (I fought) just one in a year, maybe two. I want to enjoy the moment because it’s so hard for us to stop fighting. Imagine, all my life I have fought, and one day, I have to stop. For sure, I know that. Maybe two years. But imagine I’m the PFL champion at (age) 44? I know I can.”

The terms of Werdum's PFL contract were not revealed; however, it would be no surprise to see him take part in a $1 million heavyweight tournament.
