WEC apparently is planning to kick off 2009 in a big way with WEC 38. Scheduled to be held in San Diego, former Featherweight Champion Urijah Faber is scheduled to headline the event although he won't get his title rematch yet (Mike Brown is injured), but Lighweight Champion Jamie Varner and Welterweight Champion Carlos Condit will both defend their belts. The card is likely to air on Versus and not PPV.

Probably Brock Larson, but I'm hoping for a rematch with Jake Shields.

TBA but Larson seems to be the most-mentioned name from what I've seen. Rumored opponents for Faber right now are Leonard Garcia and Jose Aldo.

Seems like it should be a good card.

I'd like to see Faber vs. Garcia. I wouldn't mind the Faber vs. Aldo match either, but I think Aldo would benefit from a little more time in the cage before getting a match like Faber (which he could still win).
