Werdum Signs On For UFC Spanish Commentary
Following two main event appearances, as well as boomergang-gate, Fabricio Werdum is looking to make his return cage side as a commentator.
As reported by MMA Fighting, Wedum spoke with UFC President Dana White in late January about the direction of his career.
Coming out of that interview, Werdum said on the MMA Hour on Monday, that he’s been added to UFC’s spanish commentary team, returning to a position he held until 2016 due to an anti-reebok post on his personal Instagram.
”Yes, I’m happy about this because I love this job,” Werdum said. “It’s not just about money. For money too, but it’s my work. I love this work. The first time I go to the TV for commentary I no like it because I have a fight coming up and I didn’t wanna do that, but now I love this. I love TV because it’s in Spanish, for all Latin America, for USA in FOX Desportes, and I’m fluent in Spanish, I’m very comfort that. I love this.”
Werdum hopes to start at Saturday’s UFC 221 card, headlined Luke Rockhold vs. Yoel Romero for the interim middleweight championship, and hopes that this position is something that will become a constant as he stares down retirement.
”Maybe I stop fighting in four years, three years, I have a good job,” said Werdum, who headlines UFC London on March 17 against Alexander Volkov. “Not job just for money, but I love this. Much better.”
