Faber vs. Curran announced; new deal with Versus signed

The WEC has made two very important announcements today.
First, they’ve extended their deal with Versus. Under the agreement, WEC will deliver 20 additional WrekCage shows and 15 more live WEC fight cards.
And the other big announcement is that the WEC’s next live show after tonight’s card is slated for Dec. 12. Urijah Faber (19-1) is scheduled to defend his WEC featherweight title against Jeff Curran (16-6-1).
The news that they’ve re-upped with Versus is certainly good news. However, I would have loved to have seen the WEC sign on with a partner that has greater distribution. They’ve got so many good fighters on their roster right now that more people need to know about. The WEC belongs on a more prestigious network.
Faber will be favored going into the fight with Curran but he will definitely be tested. It has a chance to be one of the best matches of the year in any promotion.
Also, remember to check out the WEC tonight at 9 p.m. ET on Versus. “Razor” Rob McCullough defends the lightweight title against Rich Crunkilton while Chase Beebe defends his bantamweight title against Rani Yahya.
I’m picking McCullough and Yahya. Also be sure to watch Brian Stann (4-0), who will be taking on Jeremiah Billington. I’m going with Stann all the way in that one.

Good article but Rani Yaya or whatever is terrible. He will get murdered by anyone who is not severely mentally retarded. If you have one year of wrestling I think you can beat him. He does not represent the weight class well at all IMO
