On paper, Fabricio Werdum has one of the most impressive careers at heavyweight, ever. Werdum is a former UFC champion and has beaten some of the biggest names in the UFC and some of the biggest names in the sport in general. Including becoming the first man to legitimately stop one of the greatest heavyweights of all time in Fedor Emelianenko, back in 2010. Fabricio has some top-notch Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu accolades and is one of the most dangerous submission artists off of his back in the UFC. Werdum is undoubtedly going to end his career in the UFC Hall of Fame and though he has a strong Jiu-Jitsu background it often opens up opportunities to use his now very competent striking.
