Scott Coker explains why Bellator turned down the chance to sign Fabricio Werdum .
UNCASVILLE, Conn. – When expressed interest in rematching Fedor Emelianenko, most expected Bellator to be his new home. Instead, the former UFC heavyweight champion opted to sign with PFL, citing his ability to compete numerous times a year due to the tournament format as his main reason. Werdum (24-9) scored a big upset submission of Emelianenko in Strikeforce in 2010 where, at the time, Bellator president Scott Coker was running the ship. So, given the pair’s existing relationship, Bellator seemed like a perfect fit.
