During the UFC Fight Club Q&A Session in Las Vegas today, UFC President Dana White announced that the WEC has signed a new deal with the Versus Network. With the agreement, the WEC puts to rest any and all rumors regarding a merger with the UFC.

Unfortunately for DirecTV fans, there’s no news regarding Versus coming back after the two-sides failed to reach an agreement on a new contract.

White did admit that there was consideration by all parties involved about merging the two promotions but it won’t be happening in the near future after the new agreement with Versus was signed.

The WEC features fighters from the 135lbs., 145lbs. and 155lbs. divisions.
