Joseph Benavidez vs. Danny Martinez - WEC 37

The growing bantamweight division in World Extreme Cagefighting adds two more potential contenders to its Dec. 3 show in Las Vegas, as has confirmed that Joseph Benavidez will face Danny Martinez on the card.

Many fans will remember Benavidez from his brief stint fighting in Japan for the Dream promotion, when he was originally scheduled to face Norifumi “Kid” Yamamoto. Unfortunately, Yamamoto dropped out of the fight due to injury. Benavidez went on to dominate Junya Kudo, a late replacement for his original opponent.

Now Benavidez will move onto the WEC, which is quickly becoming the home of many of the top bantamweights in the world, including current champion Miguel Torres.

His opponent, Danny Martinez, is 11-2 in his professional career, while also holding the Rage in the Cage bantamweight title.

Last competing in early October, Martinez hopes to add onto his current three-fight win streak against an undefeated opponent in Benavidez, who trains alongside former WEC featherweight champion Urijah Faber.

Stay tuned to for more information on the upcoming Dec. 3 WEC 37 fight card as it becomes available.
I'm so happy with what WEC are doing to their lighter divisions. The WEC right now is just, too cool.

I'm taking Benavidez btw.

Fedor fights I want to see..

Fedor vs. Josh Barnett
Fedor vs. Randy Couture
Fedor vs. Tim Sylvia - DEMOLISHED
Fedor vs. Andrei Arlovski - DEMOLISHED

Hey that is pretty sweet. I remember Faber saying in an interview that if Kid could beat Benavidez then maybe he would be ready to fight Urijah. Nice to see they are expanding their divisions though. WEC has been putting on ridiculous cards as of late.

Gonzaga vs dos Santos - UFC on VS
Vera vs Jones - UFC on VS
Bibs vs Hansen - Dream 13
GSP vs Hardy - UFC 112
Gomi vs Florian - UFN 21
Nelson vs Struve - UFN 21
