Fabricio Werdum discusses the timing of Mario Yamasaki‘s stoppage after Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira verbally submitted to an armbar from “Vai Cavalo” in the UFC on FUEL TV 10 main event.

“I’m very happy to have submitted him, but obviously I didn’t want to hurt his arm. No way whatsoever did I want to hurt him, but that happened and I think Yamasaki stopped us at the right moment and I’m really very happy.”

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Fabricio Werdum discussed (through an interpreter) his second-round submission victory over Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira in the UFC on FUEL TV 10 headliner (highlights here) at the event’s post-fight press conference (watch it here). At the time of his comments, Werdum felt guilty about hurting Nogueira’s arm with the submission due to the fact “Minotauro” was taken to the hospital for medical examination, but also felt that referee Mario Yamasaki did a great job by stopping the fight at “the right moment” when Nogueira verbally submitted. Fortunately, Nogueira did not sustain any serious injuries in the fight (more on that here), so Werdum can now soak up the entire importance of the moment and doesn’t need to feel bad for his opponent.
