Paul Craig Hopes UFC London Win Will Save His Job

UFC London was the final fight on Paul Craig’s contract, and now he has to hope he did enough for a renewal.

Paul Craig’s come from behind (at the literal last second) submission win over Magomed Ankalaev was good enough to win him a $ 50,000 performance of the night bonus. But the Scottish fighter is more than a little concerned that it wasn’t enough to convince the UFC to renew his contract.

This fight at UFC London was the last on his contract and follows two first round KO losses for the “Bearjew.” Given he was also losing the fight against Ankalaev right up til the final moment, he’s worried the UFC might not be impressed with his overall performance.

“I don’t really know if I’ve done enough to get my contract renewed,” he said after the fight (via MMA Junkie). “We never know. The UFC have got this massive roster, and if I was Dana White and I was watching that, I’d be like, ‘Ah, mate. You’re getting no contract. You can fight for somebody else.’ I’m being genuinely serious. I’m not gonna lie to you and sugar-coat this.”

”But you know what? In another six months, and I’ll be better again. And another six months again, and I’ll be better again. That’s why I’m here. I’m here to get better. I’ve only been doing this sport for five years. There are guys who have dedicated their whole lives to this.”

The unlikely win at UFC London puts Craig at 2-2 in the UFC, and if we were to guess we’d say the UFC will indeed call the Scotsman back … if not under the most lucrative circumstances. The sooner the better as far as Craig is concerned.

“Liverpool’s just around the corner, my face isn’t too bad. I wasn’t knocked out. I’ve no injuries. Why not?”

Werdum Promises To Rise After UFC London Loss

The former heavyweight champion promises to rise after his defeat at the hands of Alexander Volkov.

Former UFC heavyweight champion Fabricio Werdum has released a statement following his fourth round knockout loss to Alexander Volkov at UFC: London. The loss was especially disappointing for fans of the Brazilian jiu jitsu expert considering he was doing so well in the early rounds.

A hard jab from Volkov swelled Werdum’s eye shut and that lack of visibility allowed his opponent to overwhelm him with strikes and knock him out cold. But it doesn’t sound like the loss will stop Werdum from continuing to strive for his old belt back.

”I would like to thank everyone who cheered for me, who sent me messages of support and who are by my side in this difficult moment which is a defeat,” Werdum wrote. “I am sad but I keep my head up with the certainty that life is made and mistakes and correct and that the most important of this trajectory is how we rise from a fall.”

”I am fortunate to have happiness and determination in my heart and to be surrounded by people who respect me and who give me the energy that I need to continue my path of success. Thanks for the support and know that each one of you is very important to me!”

The loss in London brings Werdum’s record to 23-8 and is just the third time in his career he’s been finished. Who knows where he’ll end up in the rankings after losing to #8 Volkov but we’re sure he’ll be back to action. A win would have put him right back into title talks, but now Werdum will have to toil a bit longer to prove his worth – and against younger heavyweights on a dangerous upswing.
