Fabricio Werdum says he could work for both UFC and WWE.
For over fifteen years, Fabricio Werdum has been competing in mixed-martial-arts in UFC and other promotions. Now the former UFC champion says he would be interested in venturing into professional wrestling. Werdum told MMAFighting he will be meeting with 'WWE officials' on Thursday.
”I think that both is doable. You can do WWE. If I had the opportunity I’d fight there, no problem. It’s financially great. Fight at WWE, a spectacle that is fun to do. I’d definitely do it. I have a meeting Thursday about it, doing both. I want to fight, doesn't matter where,” said Werdum.
The professional wrestling training has not been taken lightly by Werdum because he said he knows it will be a tough profession.
”I’ll have this meeting Thursday in San Diego to see if something happens with WWE. It’s cool, a unique opportunity to do a few fights there as well. People think it’s easy, but it’s not. You have to be well trained to do those jumps, you have to be agile. It’s not easy as some people might think. It’s quite complicated. You have to be well trained and practice a lot to captivate the audience,” said Werdum.
Werdum later cleared the air, saying that he meant lucha libre instead of WWE.
Also in the interview, Werdum brought up that he can speak Spanish and he believes that will be beneficial in a potential pro wrestling career.
