The heaviest weight division is up in the air.
In 2009, Fabrício Werdum competed pretty much at home, in Spain, where he taught and lived and where he enjoyed the support of a true legion of fans.
In going for his third divisional title in the ADCC the Brazilian won’t have the same level of backing.
Furthermore, he has dedicated the last few years almost entirely to MMA, without appearing in any Jiu-Jitsu or submission grappling tournaments.
However, talent doesn’t just disappear and no one can doubt of what Werdum is capable; after all, not just anyone makes it to two ADCC titles.
