Rumor has it Curran is facing both Mike Brown's at the same time.

And if you mix the colors of both of their BJJ belts using paint it becomes one black color.

You're probably right... But I'm still hoping Jens lands a big left and ends it suddenly...

Unfortunately the card just took a bit of a hit-Manny Tapia, who was to have faced WEC Bantamweight Champion Miguel Torres for the title, is now off due to injury (torn ACL). He's expected to be out 3-4 months. No replacement has been named but Yoshiro Maeda has been mentioned, even though he was just announced as facing Damacio Page on the card.

Big update today, WEC has officially announced most if not all the prelim matches for 34:
Jeff Curran vs. Mike Brown (Mike Thomas Brown)
Tim McKenzie (he of the mohawk) vs. Eric Schambri
Jose Aldo vs. Alexandre Franca Nogueira
Alex Serdyukov vs. Luis Sapo
Charlie Valencia vs. Dominick Cruz

Only Faber-Pulver is confirmed as a TV fight, which suggests that the most or all of the 5 other rumored fights so far may air on TV. Rob McCullough is also rumored to be fighting on this card. Still no official word on the status of Miguel Torres defending the WEC Bantamweight Championship.

Thanks for the info DC. I'm glad Chase Beebe is now part of the card. Good to see him back in action. The card is stacked I can't wait for the fights.

The final card has been released by WEC and is in the first post. 11 fights total, at least 4 will air on Versus.

On paper, this looks to be another card that should continue the streak of excellent shows that WEC has been putting together these last several months. And it's on free TV! Hopefully Faber-Pulver will live up to the billing and be the FOTY candidate it sounds like.

Late change to the card, Eric Schambari is out due to injury. He was to have faced Tim McKenzie. Jeremy Lang is the replacement-Lang is making his WEC debut, coming in with a 12-0 career record.

The rating for the event just came out: 1.4. If that's not the highest rating ever for a program on Versus, it's going to be very close to it. Even better considering it went opposite a WWE PPV.
