    While Hunt has declined, it was still impressive how he won. He stood in the pocket, traded with the heavy hitting Hunt and got the job done.
    Obviously it wasn't the Hunt that KO'd Struve and went to war with Bigfoot but this also isn't the Werdum who beat Cain and this is the Werdum who gassed against Volkov

    Why did I think he was USADAd or something of that nature and decided to leave the UFC and go to russia/asia not long ago? i'm going insane

    I could honestly see him winning or losing all those but I'd pick him over Jariz and beast but probably not ngannou or blaydes but wouldn't be shocked if he beat them

    I think he will look ok but........ quite out of shape, a bit tubby. I don't know how hard he's gonna be training but I remember him looking quite pudgy for 1 or 2 of his UFC fights before he got suspended for positive PED-test.

    I'm sure there's been one, but I can't think of it.

    The funny thing is that at 42 they aren't as terrible as you would expect. This isn't like Tito vs Chuck 3.

    I'd pay PPV $$ to see Werdum fight that clown.

    No I’m pretty sure something like that happened. I remember that.

    Edit: via Wikipedia...

    Werdum was expected to face Alexey Oleynik on 15 September 2018 at UFC Fight Night 136.[54]However on 22 May, Fabrício Werdum was flagged for a potential USADA doping violation.[55] In September 2018 it was revealed that the substance in question was trenbolone and as a result he was suspended from competition for 2 years.[56] He will be eligible to return in May 2020.[57] Having two fights left in his contract, Werdum announced that he has requested for a release from the UFC.[58]Werdum 2 years suspension was reduced 10 months for substantial assistance.[59]

    Thank you!

    So another snitch? I love to see him back though. He must've deemed it more profitable in the end to wait it out and come back to the UFC then.

    I hope so. But he was old before the suspension, so who knows where he'll be now
