Some of you may be going about your daily lives, excited for Werdum vs. Big Nog, while being completely unaware that this is the second time they’ve fought. I know, I can’t explain why the UFC’s promotion of this fight is somewhat confusing, but I’m here to un-muddy those waters.
Werdum entered Pride in 2005, going 3-1 in the promotion before joining the 2006 openweight GP. He would meet Big Nog in the quarterfinals and lose. Now… He’s back for revenge. The two were coaches opposite each other on TUF: Brazil 2, and they just weighed in for this weekend’s fight. So watch the original before you see the sequel.
