Anthony Leone has signed a 4-fight deal with WEC and won't have to wait long for his first fight. He's been tapped as a replacement on the card for the injured Clint Godfrey and will face Renan Berao in his WEC debut. Although the paperwork for the fight hasn't been completed, verbal agreements are in place.

I think Anthony Leone will do good in the wec. He trains in up state New York with team BombSquad and trains with alot of really tuff good fighters like Jon Jones, John Franchi, and Mike Massenzio. He also spent alot of time training with BJ Penn in Hawaii he worked alot on his bjj and getting better. He is 8-0 and can do good in the wec 135 division and maybe could win a title.

Oh man, welcome to the WEC Leone. I won't count him out because of what Brilz managed but this is a VERY tough first test.

i'm very happy for Leone. He used to train out here on Long Island at my gym. Very nice guy and a very good fighter. I wish him the best of luck.
