some of these have been common knowledge/rumors for a little while (like mccullough/crunkilton), but now there are 4 CONFIRMED fights for the upcoming WEC card.. with jason miller and joe riggs also rumored to be on the card, i think WEC is on their way to having a pretty nice event..

Dude you get around, don't cha? Lot's of articles. ANyway I hope it's MAyhem vs Riggs. hat would be a good fight and Riggs would be at 185, which is where I think he belongs.

I like both Alessio and Condit and they should make for a great fight.

Riggs vs Mayhem would be main card material on a UFC card IMO. Mayhem got a lot of shit after he got wasted by Trigg but he's an awesome fighter and hopefully he'll come back stronger. And Riggs is Riggs.
The only problem I have with this match-up is that one of them have to lose and both are in need of a V.

Not a very big fan of either Razor Rob or Crunkilton but they're both very good LWs and hopefully it'll be a more exciting fight than I think it will.

I think that is a Wec 185 title fight right there. I will be cheering for Riggs. Although i think he might lose to a bad Sub. I think there is a good chance he cna pull out the win.

No more Mayhem? Ah man that sucks. I was hoping for Miller\Riggs ever so much. Hmm Joe is probably gonna fight some random can now.

UFCmania.com says he is fighting in the WEC specifically because his contract allows him to also fight in ICON. Then he might go to the UFC. No mention of opponent though

I hope this fight card will be televised! That's all I care about. Hopefully Riggs and Jason work out!

Apparently Jorge Gurgel is on this card too. Here is the source, it's in the third paragraph.

I doubt Jorge would be out of the UFC considering he just beat a guy by a dominating descision while injured. I think he might have some injuries that are messing him p. Like long term ones not short term stuff that is fixed with rest.

Anyone have an update on the supposed deal between WEC and the Vs. cable network? Last I saw, they were supposed to start broadcasting WEC events sometime in '07.
