— Ariel Helwani (@arielhelwani) June 30, 2023Werdum’s lone PFL fight would end in a no-contest after the referee didn’t see Renan Ferreira tapped, leading to Ferreira recovering and getting a first-round TKO. ‘Vai Cavalo’ is no longer contractually signed to the PFL. 

“Junior dos Santos x Fabricio Werdum 2 is signed for Sept. 8 in Jacksonville, I’m told. The pair first fought at UFC 90, a fight won by JDS via spectacular KO. But there’s a twist: it’s happening under bare knuckle MMA rules for @GamebredFighter’s BK MMA promotion.”
