Prior to arriving in Las Vegas for UFC 216 fight week, Fabricio Werdum and Tony Ferguson were paired up for a media luncheon to promote their respective fights.
The way things unfolded, however, it was Werdum and Ferguson (a heavyweight and a lightweight) nearly came to blows at what was supposed to have been a fairly relaxed event.
Because of how events unfolded and the things that were said, Werdum was later called homophobic for hurling a derogatory term at Ferguson.
At the UFC 216 Ultimate Media Day, Werdum discussed the incident with MMAWeekly.com and defended his side of the situation, including why people shouldn’t classify him as homophobic.
