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.
