Fast-rising featherweight contender Wagnney Fabiano (12-1 MMA, 2-0 WEC) is expected to go for his ninth consecutive victory against undefeated WEC newcomer Eric Koch (8-0 MMA, 0-0 WEC) in September at WEC 43.

A source close to one of the fighters told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) that bout agreements are expected to be distributed and finalized shortly for the 145-pound contest.

WEC 43 takes place Sept. 2 at the Covelli Centre in Youngstown, Ohio, and features a main event of Donald Cerrone vs. Benson Henderson for the WEC's interim lightweight title.

That sucks for Erik Koch.

"Congratulations on making the WEC Erik. For your first opponent you will get a Nova Uniao Blackbelt with 8 straight wins who is probaby the 3rd or 4th best FW on the planet. Good luck." -WEC

I saw Erik Koch on a local card in April. He looked like he had some talent and some slick subs. It is a shame he gets thrown the worst match up for him possible.

Im not sold on Fabiano, might be trying to build him up for a title shot with giving him a new guy to the WEC.

I think he should be fighting a contender at FW, but they are throwing koch at him who seems like a submission guy aswell. So it could be a decision win like fabiano's last fight, ground games just negate each other. idk.

don't get me wrong here, i want aldo to get that shot. no one has been as dominant as him in the wec. but i heard that fabiano might get the shot first, which i would have disagreed with. so now it should be all good then.

by the way, is it possible to watch unaired wec prelims? i hate to miss those...
