GLENDALE, Ariz. – It's only fitting that World Extreme Cagefighting closed its doors with an awe-inspiring kick and closely contested main event that saw the crowning of a new and final WEC lightweight champion.
A late-fight fence walk that resulted in a highlight-reel head kick allowed challenger Anthony Pettis to edge champ Benson Henderson in the main event of Thursday's WEC 53 event.
It was the final fight in the history of the always-entertaining WEC, which now merges with its sister promotion, the UFC.
