WEC is, for now, one bout short on it's planned WEC 43 card. The promotion has announced that Alex Karalexis is off due to injury, and his original opponent, Anthony Pettis, is now also off as a result. One of the 7 prelims will be moved up to air on Versus, but it's not known yet which one it'll be.

That is too bad. This fight was going to be easy money.

too bad for anthony, this was going to be his breakout fight and a win would have put his name in the mix at the top of the FW division.

I was looking forward to seeing Pettis slay the TRex....

Wonder what they could replace it with?

Garcia vs Gamburyan would be a sweet replacement!
Or
Horodecki vs Gomi!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The answer is Raphael Assuncao vs. Yves Jabouin.

I disagree, if it was my choice I'd have gone with either Manny Tapia vs. Eddie Wineland, or perhaps Wagnney Fabiano vs. Erik Koch seeing how if he wins this one it's gonna be pretty hard to keep denying Fabiano his title shot after Jose Aldo gets his in November.
