SACRAMENTO, Calif. – As the WEC's first-ever pay-per-view event draws near, the big guns from both the WEC and UFC have descended upon Sacramento, Calif., to begin final preparations for the April 24 event.

But while WEC stars Jose Aldo, Urijah Faber, Ben Henserson and Donald Cerrone joined UFC president Dana White today at ARCO Arena for a pre-event press conference, there was one noticeable absence.

I think that it going to PPV and all the UFC guys taking over for the WEC guys is just another sign of the impending doom that is soon to fall on the WEC brand. I think that it should and will some day be absorbed by the UFC, at least down to the BW Div.

the closer it get the more i'm thinking i'll order. I do this all the time...tell myself i'm going to skip an event and then read the commentary online but that doesn't cut it. I need to see it go down
