Photo by Jack Bratcher / - Is it just me or has Werdum's striking improved since his UFC days?

The fight between Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva and Fabricio Werdum at Strikeforce – Fedor vs. Rogers this past weekend was one of the most exciting bouts on the card. Bigfoot started out very strong with a flurry of punches that put Werdum on his back.

Werdum hung tough and rallied with some nice shots of his own. In round one Bigfoot refused to play the ground game and stayed on his feet as much as possible to take advantage of his heavy striking power. However, he relaxed on that strategy and Werdum got him to the ground in round two.

Werdum’s striking seems to have improved quite a bit actually, and in rounds two and three he landed some good shots, got a couple of takedowns, controlled the pace, and ended the fight on top of Silva. In the end, Werdum got the unanimous 29-28 decision. snapped a complete photo gallery of the fight which you can view after the jump. To see all our photos from the event go to the Photo Album.
