WEC moving forward with flyweight division
(mmaweekly.com)
In early 2009, World Extreme Cagefighting announced its intentions of adding a flyweight division. On a media conference call on Tuesday, WEC General Manager Reed Harris said to expect further announcements this year on the 125-pound weight class being incorporated into the organization. “We’re working on it,” said Harris. “The thing that we focus on in WEC is making sure that all of our fights are meaningful and making sure our divisions are deep. Part of that is making sure your guys get fights. So right now we’re focusing on the divisions we have, getting those guys plenty of fights, keeping them busy. “We’re working on the flyweight division and sometime, I’m sure, in 2010, we’ll announce that we’re going to be forming that and get that moving.”

As the hours tick away, Urijah Faber and Raphael Assuncao now know that they are not only headed for a tough fight against each other on Sunday night in Sacramento, Calif., but also a fight that will likely determine the next contender to WEC featherweight champion Jose Aldo. “We’ve definitely had that discussion,” said WEC general manager Reed Harris on Tuesday. “Ultimately Sean Shelby, our matchmaker, will make that decision, and we always like to wait until after the fight. But I’ll be honest with you guys, we’ve had that discussion over the last week.”

Ben Henderson's greatness lies in his humility
(mmaweekly.com)
At the start of 2009, Ben Henderson was a young up and comer who hoped to make his way in a growing lightweight division in the WEC. By the end of the year, he was holding an interim title belt and being mentioned as a candidate for "Fighter of the Year." On paper it may seem that 2009 will be hard to top, but Henderson is determined to do just that. It starts with his title unification bout with WEC champion Jamie Varner on Jan. 10.

Searching for title shot, could WEC's Scott Jorgensen meet Miguel Torres in March?
(mmajunkie.com)
WEC bantamweight contender Scott Jorgensen (8-3 MMA, 4-2 WEC) is one razor-thin round away from carrying a five-fight win streak in the WEC. With wins over Takeya Mizugaki, Noah Thomas, Frank Gomez and Kenji Osawa since August 2008, Jorgensen's only blemish is a June split-decision loss to Anontio Banuelos in a bout that came down to a dead-even second frame.

WEC 45 ratings,Down 21%
(mmajunkie.com)
This past weekend's broadcast of "WEC 45: Cerrone vs. Ratcliff" on Versus drew a 0.4 household rating and averaged 330,000 viewers, Versus officials today confirmed with MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com). The event took place Dec. 19 at The Pearl at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas. The show featured a non-title headliner and few of the organization's top stars. Additionally, the event went head-to-head with "Strikeforce: Evolution" on Showtime. Therefore, it's not surprising that ratings were down 21 percent compared to the two most recent WEC-Versus broadcasts.

Some worry about ring rust as Chris (The Polish Hammer) Horodecki returns to action Saturday night in his World Extreme Cagefighting debut. The baby-faced 22-year-old from London, Ont., has fought just once since April 2008 after all. But an excited Horodecki (13-1) sees it differently. "This would be my fourth fight this year," he said.
