Although the deal isn't done yet, the cable network Versus and WEC are closing in on at least a 2-year extension of their contract. The deal also will ilkely give the rights to air prelim fights that do not air on TV as part of WEC events.

This is good news. I hope VS airs the prelims too.

As long as WEC doesnt go to PPV.

That likely is still happening, but the plan as far as I know has always been to at least keep the Versus deal going at the same time. They'd only do a couple of PPVs a year starting out.

This is great news, both that they'll still be airing shows on VS and that we possibly get to see the prelims.

Don't they air prelims already on WEC Wreckage?

I suppose it's good news. I think if Zuffa wants the WEC on PPV though, perhaps a slightly bigger network would have been worth a look.
