For all you hardcore WEC fans out there, you can purchase your tickets for “WEC 44: Brown vs. Aldo” today at 3PM ET/12 PM PT. Featherweight champ Mike Brown will be making his third title defense as he faces the dangerous Jose Aldo in the night’s final bout.
WEC.tv newsletter subscribers received a pre-sale password to begin purchasing tickets yesterday, however us common folk get dibs this afternoon.
Brown was last seen taking a convincing unanimous decision victory over former WEC featherweight stud Urijah Faber at WEC 41 in June. He has been prefect through his last 10 fights, including two wins over Faber.
Speaking of win streaks, Aldo has won eight in a row. He stakes claim to an impressive 15-1 overall mark, however he has never faced a fighter the caliber of Brown before.
In addition, the organization also confirmed that former 145-pound top contender Leonard Garcia will face “The Ultimate Fighter 5” runner-up Manny Gamburyan on the card as well. It is believed that the victor could earn consideration for a title shot against the evening’s featured contest.
Tickets for WEC 44 cost between $50 to $175, however if you don’t have DirecTV and would like to watch the main bouts, you can catch them on Versus Network.
