UFC 141 – Fabricio Werdum rumoured to be facing Brendan Schaub December 30th in Las Vegas, Nevada

November 8, 2011 All MMA News, UFC

It has today been rumoured that Strikeforce heavyweight submission machine, Fabricio Werdum has not only resigned with the UFC but he will also take on top prospect, Brendan Schaub at UFC 141 on December 30th in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The news was revealed by Swedish site MMANytt.se yesterday, although there is no official word from the Las Vegas based promotion.

Werdum was last seen in action in June when he was defeated by Strikeforce heavyweight champion, Alistair Overeem via unanimous decision. He was widely criticised by fans and critics alike after repeatedly pulling guard throughout the fight.

Schaub is coming off a first round TKO loss at the hands of former UFC and PRIDE champion, Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira at UFC 134 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, a loss that derailed his title ambitions if just for now. Stay tuned to MMABay for more news on this developing situation as we get it.

Buying Supplements for MMA Training and Hardcore Workouts
Many people ask what type of supplements they should use for MMA training and hardcore workouts. With each person and training program the supplements will vary.  Anyone exerting enormous amounts of energy with their training needs to have a proper diet, lots of rest and quality supplementation. Some of the supplement staples for MMA and hardcore workouts will include Creatine, Whey Protein, BCAAs (Branched Chain Amino Acids), L Carnitine, Beta Alanine and Glutamine.  You may also need extra pre-workout energy and strength with Ephedrine/Ephedra and Prohormones.  As well you will need to replenish nutrients with Multivitamins, Super Greens, Fish Oil and Joint Support Supplements. Make sure to research what the requirements are for your specific training program, and do as much research as possible on each supplement you are taking. Buy supplements at a trusted source - one company we recommend for quality products and service is CenturySupplements.com.  They have quick delivery to the UK and a wide selection. They have been around for along time and have had great reviews from our customers.
