Fabricio Werdum took another step towards a title shot tonight at UFC Fight Night 121, as the former heavyweight champ outstruck a very game, Marcin Tybura.
Werdum bested Tybura in the majority of the fight’s striking exchanges, and landed some heavy shots, but was unable to finish the rising fighter. In fact, in round five, Tybura threatened Werdum with some big kicks.
After five rounds of action there was little doubt that Werdum would be handed the decision win, which he was.
