WEC Poster 50 Cruz vs. Benavidez

WEC 50 will be jumping off this Wednesday in Las Vegas, Nevada. Newly crowned champ Dominick Cruz will defend his 135-pound crown against Joseph Benavidez in the card’s featured attraction.

Cruz defeated Benavidez at WEC 42 to earn a title shot against then champ Brian Bowles at WEC 47. The dynamic Cruz took full advantage of his opportunity by stopping Bowles by TKO to earn the belt.

Benavidez now has the chance to not only avenge the only loss of his professional career, but also capture his first major title.

Upset City Alert: Ngo-stradamus has personally told me that he is feelin’ some underdog action.

Shane Roller -170
Anthony Pettis +130

Joseph Benavidez +200
Dominick Cruz -300
