SACRAMENTO, Calif. – Former WEC champion Urijah Faber fell short in his quest to dethrone surging champion Jose Aldo at Saturday night's "Aldo vs. Faber" event, but "The California Kid" helped deliver another successful live gate in his home town of Sacramento, Calif.

According to UFC and WEC president Dana White, the event, informally known as WEC 48, drew 14,144 fans to ARCO Arena, a figure that netted a gate of $1 million.

If the numbers hold true when verified later this week by the California State Athletic Commission, each figure is a new WEC record.

that would make 2 then

was definitely worth it actually, very very good event i was very pleased. Only thing that kinda bothered me was that they showed the mendes/morrisson fight twice due to having too much time to kill. Other then that, i give WEC 2

I was VERY dissapointed at the undercard production team. They messed up a few times with screens coming up and bad camera timing. Even though the UFC got em a bunch of help they still got like a C on production cohesion.
