The International Fight League may have vanished, but its most dominant fighter had no trouble finding a new home.

Wagnney Fabiano is excited about joining the WEC, and his arrival adds yet another top-flight contender to the organization’s suddenly stacked featherweight division. Fabiano steamrolled and finished all six of his IFL opponents, but he believes the WEC is a step up in competition and will reveal a lot more about him as a fighter.

Good to see the WEC pick up Fabiano.

With the WEC closing their LHW and MW divisions, my guess is his contract is out the window. I don't know if the UFC would want him, unless he's improved in the last couple of years.

And does anyone know what Deividas Taurosevicius is up to these days? I'd like to see him again, in WEC or DREAM or whatever (I'm not sure he's UFC material, but if they wanted to give him a shot, I'd watch).
