Fabricio Werdum has a new management company heading into this UFC heavyweight title unification bout.
Werdum, the UFC interim heavyweight champion, has signed with Dominance MMA, joining the likes of Frankie Edgar, Rafael dos Anjos and Khabib Nurmagomedov, MMAFighting.com has learned. Werdum said he will also continue to work with former manager Lucas Pires for sponsorships.
Dos Anjos and fellow Dominance client Beneil Dariush train with Werdum at Kings MMA.
Werdum will meet heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez in the main event of UFC 188 in Mexico City to unify the belts. The two were supposed to meet at UFC 180, but Velasquez got hurt. Werdum beat Mark Hunt by second-round knockout on that card to earn the interim title.
