Undefeated featherweight prospect Chad Mendes (5-0 MMA, 0-0 WEC) is heading to the big show.
WEC general manager Reed Harris confirmed with MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) that Mendes recently signed a multi-fight exclusive contract with the Team Alpha Male fighter.
"We are really excited to bring Chad into the WEC," Harris said. "He is one of the toughest fighters to come out of Urijah Faber's gym and he has the potential to be a world champion."
