From Futebol to BJJ!

 “No I don’t like jiu jitsu. I don’t like to fight; I like women!”

UFC Heavyweight Fabricio Werdum on his views on fighting before taking up BJJ!



With it being the start of  the World Cup in the spiritual home of football and birthplace of BJJ, we thought we’d share this short but interesting interview with Brazilian born UFC Heavyweight Fighter, Fabricio Werdum.

“Vai Cavalo” talks about the influence of football with regards to his nickname which translates as “Go Horse” in English.

He light heartedly discusses his reluctance to get involved in BJJ at early age, explaining how he preferred woman over fighting, as well as how the triangle choke became his “speciality” after a brief encounter with a pushy purple belt!
