WEC general manager Reed Harris, while on “Dave and Mahoney in the Morning” on X107.5 radio in Las Vegas, confirmed that the fight between current WEC featherweight champion Jose Aldo and former champion Urijah Faber will headline a May pay-per-view.

Exactly....I consider myself a fight/MMA fan....and still I wouldn't pay $45.99 for a WEC card, even if I could make it myself and put every belt they have on the line in one fight!

I love the WEC but no casual fan I've talked to knows Aldo. For a new product that makes shows on the spot like Strikeforce does I cant see this ppv move as anything other than greedy or spiteful at this point. It goes from free, to versus being taken away, to 45$ ... really? I think this move happening so soon after the 113 re-schedualing could be retaliation for having to move the card and get some ppv buys back from boxing with this WEC card. Apart from all that the WEC isnt nearly as stacked, they dont have as many top 10's and the contenders are lacking in almost every division. Just look how fast they have rematches and title fights.

it doesnt change anything for me because even if it was still on versus i dont get that channel. but, im cheap as hell and i dont want to pay 45 bucks for a WEC card even if it is aldo and faber. not disrespect to either fighter or WEC its just that i think its too soon and to expensive
