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.


Wasnt Zuffa in negoations with HBO? If that deal comes through then there is a chance that both orgs, UFC and WEc, could be broadcast there. Most likely Wec though as the UFC has a pretty good relationship with Spike.

update to the card.. here are all the officially announced bouts i could find..

from my previous post there is:

Rob McCullough (14-3) vs Rich Crunkilton (14-1) - LW title
John Alessio (18-9) vs Carlos Condit (19-4) - WW title
Doug Marshall (5-2) vs Jorge Oliviera (2-1-1) - LHW title
Brian Stann (2-0) vs Steve Cantwell (3-0) - LHW bout

and then today from wec.tv, i found these

Urijah Faber (17-1) vs Dominic Cruz (9-0) - FW title
Chase Beebe (9-1) vs Eddie Wineland (11-4-1) - BW title

so, so far there are 5 title fights on this card.. if they give riggs a shot at the middleweight title (or anyone else), that will be 6 title fights on one card.. the only one missing would be a heavyweight title fight, and i dont think WEC has very many heavyweights at all..

also rumored somewhere, i heard a possible bout between erik apple and brock larson, which would mean apple didnt infact sign with the UFC, but the WEC.. that would be a great matchup..

damnit.. alright, i need to start looking around before i make a post.. i just found this..

WEC FULL CARD FOR 3/24

FW: Urijah Faber vs. Dominick Cruz
WW: John Alessio vs. Carlos Condit
BW: Eddie Wineland vs. Chase Beebe
MW: Joe Riggs vs. Hiromitsu Miura
WW: Brock Larson vs. Eric Apple
WW: Dave Terrel vs. Tiki Goshn
FW: Cub Swanson vs. Tommy Lee
WW: Alex Serduykov vs. Scott Norton
FW: Micah Miller vs. Jesse Moreng
LH: Brian Stann vs. Steve Cantwell

so it looks like razor rob/rich is off until a later date, as well as marshall/oliveira..

but i was right about larson/apple, which will be a hell of a matchup..
terrel vs goshn is NOT the 'soul assassin' david terrell.. its another dave terrel who is 4-1..
and hiromitsu miura is 6-3, and a veteran of K-1 hero's, pancrase, and DEEP.. should be a good fight for riggs

yea thats what i said, that it is NOT the 'soul assassin', its a different guy whos name is spelled with one L at the end instead of two.. hes a veteran of WEC and KOTC.. figured people would get confused between the two alot

Oh believe me they do. Just like there is a Jason Miller with over 50 fights. and its not Mayhem. Fighters with the same name get mixed up a lot.
