Fabricio Werdum Says Junior dos Santos "Needs To Get Out Of The Closet"

Fabricio Werdum was supposed to fight Cain Velasquez at UFC 207.  But the Nevada Athletic Commission will not allow Velasquez to fight.

Werdum claims he'll fight any other heavyweight who wants to step in.  Junior dos Santos disputes this claim, he says he offered to step in and that Werdum declined the fight.

When Werdum caught wind of the claims, he questioned dos Santos' sexuality, via MMA Fighting:

“What ‘Cigano’ said was a bit weird,” Werdum said. “‘Cigano’ has been chasing me for a long time. You usually go after the belt, not a fighter. I think that’s weird. I wasn’t offered this (fight). He’s saying I turned it down. I’d fight him just to end this story of him chasing me.”

“Some people think he’s jealous because I became champion beating his ‘dad’ Cain Velasquez, but I don’t think that’s the case,” he continued. “I think he didn’t come out of the closet yet. I don’t have anything against homosexuals, but ‘Cigano’ needs to get out of the closet. He must have something because he won’t forget me. I already told him I’m married. Nothing against gays, but everyone does their own thing.”

Werdum sounds a little scared to me.  Dana White needs to make this one happen.
