Time to Pay

It appears that the days of watching all WEC events for free may be coming to an end. UFC president Dana White stated that he believes the WEC will be hosting their first ever pay-per-view event this June, and it will be headlined by former WEC featherweight champion Urijah Faber looking to re-claim the belt from current champion Mike Brown. 

“I’m very confident its going to happen,” White told KHTK radio in Sacramento. “… I’m very, very confident it’s going to be on pay-per-view …  (And) I’m very, very, very confident it will happen in Sacramento.”

It is apparent why the WEC would like to hold another event at the Arco Arena in Sacramento, California. At WEC 34 last June, former UFC champ Jens Pulver challenged Faber for his title, setting an all-time attendance record for the WEC.

Zuffa, LLC, the parent company of the UFC and WEC, are hoping to charge $39.95 for the event.
