WEC 53, , is set for Dec. 16 in Glendale, Ariz., in the Phoenix area.

A lightweight title fight between champion Ben Henderson and challenger Anthony Pettis headlines the WEC 53 fight card. Bantamweight champion Dominick Cruz defends his title against Scott Jorgensen in the co-main event.

“This event will go down as one of the most important in the history of the lighter weight classes,” WEC General Manager Reed Harris said. “The winner of Henderson and Pettis will fight for the UFC lightweight title next year, while the winner of Cruz-Jorgensen will immediately become the UFC bantamweight champion. The stakes have never been higher.”

I love it!!! It's sad to see the WEC go, but at least they are doing it right and finishing super strong. This card has so many sick matches, it's going to be beautiful. Out of all the promotions putting on cards in December, this one is probably going to be the best. All of these guys have big fights, and want to leave a good lasting impression as they fight for the last time in WEC and look to be successful in the UFC.
