Under its new management, World Extreme Cagefighting may be all grown up. In the past six months, the mixed martial arts league has inked deals with the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino and cable sports channel Versus. It's looking forward to becoming more than Ultimate Fighting Championship's younger sibling someday.


"To me the records were just a starting point," recalls John Paul Jones, "The most important thing was always the stage show. So many great nights. At our worst we were still better than most. At our best we could just wipe the floor with the lot of them. It was just a very good live band."

I dont see the WEC becoming super big though. If the UFC wanted a competeing org that it owned it would be better to use Pride. I think WEC will be used as WWE uses Ohio Valleyl wrestling, has a good start up foudnation for its fighters.
