Former World Extreme Cagefighting bantamweight title challenger Manny Tapia will return to action at WEC 40 in Chicago as he takes on former Shooto lightweight champion Akitoshi Tamura.



Tapia is coming off an unsuccessful bid to for the WEC bantamweight championship, being stopped by current champ Miguel Torres by strikes at WEC 37. The loss to Torres was Tapia’s first of his career. He’ll look to get back to his familiar winning ways at the UIC Pavilion in Chicago.

Manny will have his hands full with the height disadvantage. But whoever wins I think it will be by decision. Tamura didnt look too impressive in his debut, as he just gave the submission to fabiano.
