Fabricio Werdum wants to make the transition from MMA to boxing, and he’s doing it for another championship. Away from the cage since Renan Ferreira knocked him out in his PFL debut in May 2021, Werdum said he hasn’t retired from MMA, but it’s no longer his focus.

“I don’t like the word ‘retired’ or ‘stopped fighting. For us fighters, it is very difficult to stop doing what you love. I will completely change my approach”.

change focus

Werdum is not known for his MMA boxing, but he managed to become a dangerous puncher during the last decade under the tutelage of Rafael Cordeiro.

“When I set out to become a jiu-jitsu champion, I did it; in the UFC, I did too. I don’t have that title in boxing, and I want to dedicate myself 100 percent to boxing because I want that title. I was a champion in everything except boxing. I never competed in boxing and I want to add another belt on the wall.”

I won’t stop fighting [MMA], I just changed my approach completely. I will focus 100 percent on boxing, but I will not stop fighting MMA to focus on boxing.”

Regardless of when and where you compete next time, Werdum said he will be ready to become world boxing champion the first time he steps into the ring.
