Actually Werdum was not "cut", he was released when they could not renegotiate a contract. From what I understand, Werdum wanted to fight Fedor.

But that isn't likely to stop Dana from selling it in the context you described.

I'm not a huge Fedor fan and to be honest am really put off by the hype machine of M1 but....

Werdum is'nt just some heavyweight that got cut from the UFC. He's the best heavyweight bjj artist ever and was able to bring the fight into his area of expertise.

Actually I think Maricio Cruz is probably the best Heavyweight BJJ artist ever.

As for Werdum bringing the fight into his element, I think it's pretty clear that Fedor handed him that opportunity by jumping right in his guard so quickly. Regardless, he locked it up and got the W.
