Former WEC Featherweight Champion Urijah Faber is unfazed over his loss to Mike Brown and expects a war at WEC 38
Former WEC Featherweight Champion Urijah Faber (21-2) had emerged as the face of World Extreme Cagefighting (WEC), racking up five consecutive wins for the Zuffa-owned promotion, and hadn’t tasted defeat in 13 fights — an impressive streak that dated back to 2005. Then came a well-placed, fight-ending right hand courtesy of the powerful Mike Brown in the first round of their WEC 36 main event back on November 5. As Faber explains on MMAmania’s exclusive presentation of Pro MMA Radio, what you see is what you get.

WEC Plans to Expand with Flyweight Division
MMAWeekly.com sources on Tuesday revealed that the WEC is adding a 125-pound flyweight division. With WEC 38 in San Diego just three weeks away, no 125-pound bouts are expected for that fight card. The promotion's next event, likely in March, is a more apt candidate to host the WEC's new commitment to flyweight fighters. What do guys think?

“It’s not ideal, because I have everything to lose, and he has everything to gain,” Condit told MMAWeekly.com’s Sound Off. “The pool of contenders is a bit shallow. There’s not a whole lot of guys for me to fight.”

Torres On Bowles: ''It's His Time''
"I think Brian (Bowles earned) this fight a while ago. I think he's a very good opponent for me," said Torres without missing a beat. "He loves to stand up; I love to stand up. His jiu-jitsu is very good. His wrestling is very good. I think he's a very dangerous opponent. I'd love to fight Brian. "Like I've said before, I'm in the WEC to fight the best fighters in the world. I know he doesn't have a huge record, but from what I've seen of him, he's a very, very honorable opponent."

Bowles On Shot At Torres: ''It's What I Deserve''
World Extreme Cagefighting bantamweight Brian Bowles has started to see the fruits of his labor in MMA. In February, the 25-year-old Athens, Ga. native left his day job as a sales rep for Pepsi with the dream of making a serious run at the WEC bantamweight title. Gone are the 60-hour workweeks with training and fights squeezed in. Sure, he bar backs and bounces at a local club for extra money, but his day job doesn’t rule his life as before. “I think my game has gotten so much better,” he said. “I get a lot more rest and recovery time. When I come into a fight, it helps me mentally, because I know I’ve focused all my time doing nothing but preparing for the fight.”
