Fabricio Werdum is experiencing new territory on Thursday as he makes his PFL debut at PFL 3.
Werdum spent the prime of his career in the UFC and over the course of his long UFC tenure, he claimed UFC gold when he defeated Cain Velasquez for the UFC heavyweight title back in 2015.
After missing two years of action due to suspension from USADA, Werdum returned to the UFC last year and went 1-1 posting a victory over Alexander Gustafsson. Now Werdum is looking to take the momentum from the win over Gustafsson into his PFL debut.
On Thursday, Werdum will fight in the main event of PFL 3 against Renan Ferreira. Prior to his main event matchup, Werdum spoke to MyMMANews and other media outlets at PFL 3 media day. You can watch her full pre-fight press conference in the video above.
