Fabricio Werdum Celebrates His Stunning Upset Over Fedor Emelianenko

Fabricio Werdum and his crew will be partying hard tonight.

Werdum tells Sherdog’s Loretta Hunt his goal was to get Fedor on the ground with him. The double submission triangle choke/armbar he put on Fedor is a move he calls the “Vai Cavalo.” Fedor says he tapped out to the choke, not the armbar. Says he was “concentrating on the strikes, and that’s when I made a mistake.”

Scott Coker, channeling his inner Chuck Liddell, says Fedor simply “got caught.”

“Fedor got caught. I would not want to be the guy who has to fight him next.”
