Now that “WEC 53: Henderson vs. Pettis” fight week is finally upon us, AMP Energy is offering another unique opportunity to give mixed martial arts fans exclusive, unprecedented access to the sport and its best fighters.

AMP Energy is inviting enthusiasts to a live chat with UFC superstars Urijah Faber and Chad Mendes. The shindig will be hosted by PRO MMA Radio’s Larry Pepe on AMP Energy’s USTREAM this evening (Tuesday) at 6PM PT.

Faber and Mendes will field questions directly from fans regarding all that is MMA.

The chat is just another example of AMP Energy’s ability to provide access that many other major sponsors aren’t willing to. To get fans pumped for the Thursday’s WEC 53 event, AMP partnered with Bullz-Eye.com earlier this month and gave two fans the chance to have the ultimate experience with the “Best Seat in the House” contest and the “Walk Out With a Fighter” contest, featuring Pettis.

Winners of both contests also received a trip for two to Phoenix, two tickets to the fight and dinner with Faber.

This summer, WEC and AMP Energy teamed up for the Hometown Takedown contest, which gave fans the chance to vote and bring a WEC event to their area. Phoenix was announced as the fan’s choice for the December 16th fight.

Here are the contestants slated to participate in WEC 53 this Thursday:

Preliminary Bouts:

Renan Baroa vs. Chris Cariaso
Ricardo Lamas vs. Yuri Alcantara
Danny Castillo vs. Will Kerr
Eddie Wineland vs. Ken Stone
Brad Pickett vs. Ivan Menjivar
Jamie Varner vs. Shane Roller

Main Bouts:

Tie Quan Zhang vs. Daniel Downes
Bart Palaszewski vs. Kamal Shalorus
Donald Cerrone vs. Chris Horodecki
