Despite the economic fallout in the U.S., World Extreme Cagefighting is poised for its biggest year ever.

That's no small feat. Since being purchased by Zuffa (the UFC's parent company) in late 2006, WEC had seven events in 2007 and will have six in 2008 by the end of the year. They have also made inroads to the masses with a television deal on the Versus network, the rebranded Outdoor Life Network.

Vice president Peter Dropick says that the promotion currently has plans to run more events in 2009 than it ever has in the past, albeit only slightly more, but that is just the initial plans, which are open for expansion.

Now that the UFC and WEC have meshed the heavyweight, lightheavy, and middleweight classes...what will they do about having lightweight and welterweight champs? ( jamie varner and carlos condit)
