I can't wait for this card! We get to see Torres/Tapia, Fabiano's WEC debut and I think Palaszewski/Karalexis could be good.

The BW's are always completely exciting. I also cannot wait for this fight, Torres is one of my favorite MMA dudes. I do think he will take this.

WEC, once again, brings the awesome. How badass is Fabiano vs Tamura going to be? Let me tell you, it'll be REALLY BADASS. Oh, you mean to tell me that Miguel Torres, top 5 P4P'er is fighting a tough, undefeated dude like Manny Tapia? Wait, Takaya, Bowles and Bartimus? Yes please!

This is the sort of card that makes me want to not live in the UK. This, being the first card solely focusing on the lighter weight classes, is wall to wall awesomeness.

WEC really needs to get picked up by a channel overhere. Bravo which used to have UFC has replaced it with the M-1 Challenge, which seems to be a load of not very good fighters attempting to out-useless each other. The one benefit is I got to see Aleks' mullet in action as the headline.

This card IS the new WEC. They got rid of the big boys, so its all the lighter weights now. I'm really excited for December 3rd.

Most looking forward to: Fabiano vs. Tamura.

I like how the WEC is becoming the UFC's Pride Bushido.

The main three fights I wanna see are:
Miguel torres vs. Manny Tapia
From the IFL- Wagnney Fabiano vs. Akitoshi Tamura
And my dude also from the IFL- Bart Palaszewski vs. Alex Karalexis. Palaszewski has some good striking and can also submit if it goes to the ground, can't wait.

Fabiano vs Tamura is the best FW mach up in the WEC's history.

Johny Hendricks making his WEC debut is exciting hopefully he performs better then Rosholt.
