Shortly after Fabricio Werdum’s shocking upset over Fedor Emelianenko tonight at Strikeforce: Fedor vs. Werdum, Dana White took to his Twitter and expressed his reaction with the result tweeting, “: D”
White has been trying to sign the Russian heavyweight for years now, and expressed his frustrations on not being able to get a deal done last week.
“I’ve signed Brock Lesnar, who came from the WWE, James Toney from boxing – he’s a nut chasing me all over the place – Tito Ortiz, whom I hated, and he hated me. I signed him twice when we hated each other. I’ve kept Chuck Liddell, kept Matt Hughes, kept Rich Franklin, when they were all champions. Anderson Silva, I’ve dealt with all the crazy [expletive] with him,” White told MMAJunkie.com of his ability to deal with everything from the ordinary to outrageous.
“But I can’t sign Fedor? How is this possible that I can’t sign this guy? It’s not possible. These guys don’t want to fight the best in the world.”
