A featherweight bout has been added to the next WEC show slated for Aug 9 as former top contender, "Bad Boy" Leonard Garcia returns to action to face Jameel Massouh

Garcia steps back into the WEC cage for the first time since suffering a loss to current champion, Mike Brown, in a title fight back in March.

His opponent, Jameel Massouh, will make his second appearance in the WEC, after suffering a loss in his debut bout against top ten featherweight, Rafael Assuncao.

Wow, with how upright and chin-up Massouh's stand-up defense looked in his last fight? To put him in with Garcia is slaughter.

Garcia should serve Massouh the pink slip.

If Garcia and Aldo win their next fights, I think that would make an interesting fight as Fabiano seems to be the next fighter in line for a crack at the featherweight title.

I don't have a link but I remember reading Aldo/Swanson winner would get the next shot against the winner of Brown/Faber; so Fabiano might not be next, he might be the one facing Garcia.

I agree that would be a great fight though.

I dunno, they'll probably just give the loser of Faber vs Brown a matchup with Pulver, and then do the same thing again--hopefully not, but the FW division just seems to play host to rematches more often than not.

Glad to see Garcia back--I think this is the perfect matchup for Leonard. Should be competetive, but I don't think Jameel can overwhelm him with anything in his arsenal. If he's going to win, it will probably be by capitalizing on a mistake by Garcia.
