Werdum Making His Case For GOAT Status

When Fabricio Werdum first debuted in PRIDE Fighting Championships in 2005, he was a 4-0-1 prospect who started doing mixed martial arts as a secondary hobby on top of his primary competitive career as one of the best Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu practitioners in the world.

Werdum would go on to amass a 4-2 record overall while fighting with PRIDE before eventually signing with the UFC in 2007. Werdum's run with the promotion would end unceremoniously after going just 2-2 through four fights with losses to Andrei Arlovski and an 80-second knockout to Junior dos Santos in his debut bout with the promotion.

At 30 years old with an 11-4-1 record, Werdum looked like a solid mid-card heavyweight who would beat a lot of top 10 fighters, but probably wouldn't ever reach the pinnacle himself.
