The 43-year-old 2nd. degree Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu black belt has openly flirted with a move to ONE Championship in Singapore, as well as a potential rekindling with former Strikeforce head-honcho, Scott Coker, this time at Bellator.
“Just waiting one more week to say something (about free-agency),” Werdum explained. “I love Scott Coker, he’s my good friend, I love him, he invited me to go for dinner. He called me, I called him. He’s a nice guy and I love Bellator too. But, I stay in the middle. Maybe ONE FC or Bellator. ‘Superfight’ with Fedor (Emelianenko) or Brandon Vera. Brandon Vera is my son. Remember, I beat him back (in 2008). He’s my son. He’s scared for sure. When I go to ONE FC, I take his belt. Maybe we have no fight, he just gives me the belt. Please, just give me the belt. Hey, Brandon Vera, please, please.” (H/T BJPENN.COM)
