DREAM i doubt could afford Werdum when DREAM isnt paying there other fighters yet.



Dream is owned by FEG, which from what I have seen/been told has more funds then Zuffa. There must be a reason for them not paying, it's not being short on money. Think about it, they have a complete monopoly(like the UFC wants) on kickboxing, which in most of europe and Japan is incredibly popular. Also FEG's president can control what gets on a significant amount of Japanese TV. Like the first time eh Bobby?

i think Yakuza control everything over in Japan anyway, they are probably the reason ppl are not getting their money, but even fighters are not that dumb to demand their money from them!

Dream or Sengoku will pay him more then the 40k the UFC wanted to pay.



That can say they will pay him anything he wants. It's actually coming up with the money that's a problem....

Again, read my last post, FEG is a giant and they have no money problems that I have heard of.

I'm pretty sure that Werdum will end up back in the UFC for at least one more undercard fight, probably against somebody like Hardonk or Sanchez. If he wins, then he may get another shot. If he loses, then he's headed to Wild Bill's with Bobby Southworth and Patrick Smith.

He's been cut already.
