To update the Faber-Pulver item, there are reports that dsepite negotiations on his end falling through Aldo likely will still be on the card. Josh Grispi is now being mentioned as a possible opponent. Grispi is 2-0 in WEC, most recently TKOing Micah Miller (Cole's brother) in 50 seconds.

Also, according to a comment by someone who appears to be a Junkie staff member, Mike Brown's first title defense in March may be against Leonard Garcia. Nothing official yet.

Faber vs. Pulver too does nothing for me at all. Too close to the first, which was a good fight, but Faber absolutely outclassed him, I don't see anything different happening this time around.

On the other hand Cerrone vs. Varner will be awesome, and any time Condit fights I'm interested.

Add another potential "#1 or #2 Contender" fight to this card, word is Rob McCullough vs. Marcus Hicks has been added according to Razor Rob's camp. Both guys could use a win to get back into the picture.

Full final card is now in first post. 10 total fights, at least 4 will air on TV. Start time still up in the air, some sites say 9 PM ET, others say 9:30 PM ET.

Also, WEC 39 likely will be sometime in late March.

This is a good card. Lots of great undercard fights. Good luck to Blas Avena.

A late change to the card, Ed Ratcliff is now off due to an undisclosed injury. Benson (Ben) Henderson is the replacement. Henderson (no known relation to Dan) has a 7-1 career record. He most recently beat former UFC fighter Diego Saraiva and, according to his record at MixedMartialArts.com was to have faced fellow UFC veteran Junior Assuncao next Saturday. Obviously that's not happening now.

Anyone know when the undercard results will be coming in? MMAWeekly says 6:30 and MMAMania says around 8. Just curious if anyone knows the truth.

Anytime now. Weekly said the prelims were to begin at 6:45 ET.

Edit: They are now underway. Someone can make a thread in the Spoilers Forum, since I'm not gonna be able to watch tonight I won't be doing the thread.
