This past Saturday's "WEC 48: Aldo vs. Faber" event benefited from a promotional push from its sister promotion – the Ultimate Fighting Championship.

As MMAjunkie.com previously reported, the reason was simple: to get some preliminary fights on Spike TV as a teaser to the WEC's first-ever pay-per-view event, the WEC branding had to be stripped.

But what about a next step in the UFC-WEC relationship? Could we ever see UFC and WEC fighters competing on the same card?

UFC should show all 10 or 12 fights on a card, meaning showing the prelims as well as the main card. Having a mixed card would be good, but I feel like they need more time for all that talent.

So much for "no way in hell of co-promoting!!!" Yeah I know Zuffa owns both of them. I just wish they would disolve the WEC into the UFC. I dont think that the WEC can continually put on PPV's. Not enopugh of a talent pool. It would give them(UFC) another belt to put on the line and less non title fight headliners. To me a PPV without a title fight is just a bit lacking!?

I think WEC 155ers should go to the UFC

Possibly...
Benson Henderson vs winner of Penn/Edgar to unify the belts.

I like WEC for the lower classes. But 155ers need to go to the UFC
