WEC's Featherweight Division

The WEC is the place to be for pro 145 pounders now. Off the top of my head they have: Mike Brown, Urijah Faber, Wagney Fabiano, Akitoshi Tamura, Leonard Garcia, and Jens Pulver. I am sure I am missing a guy or two but this weight class is getting stacked and I am excited to watch all these guys fight. Who else do they need to pick up and what fights do you want to see in this weight class (As a 145 pounder I am very glad to see that there is a definitive place to be for 145s)

and Cub Swanson who is solid.

Jens is kinda trash now but I agree.

I mean Mike Brown, Leonard Garcia, Wagnney Fabiano, Akitoshi Tamura and Urijah are all excellent.

And then a ton of other guys are very good and promising.

I will say though I don't think Urijah will be able to hang at FW for much longer with Brown, Garcia, and Fabiano are all bigger and stronger then him.

I would love to see Leonard Garcia get a shot at the FW title against Mike Brown. He certainly has earned it.

Edit: Damacio Page is also a good fighter that can match at BW and FW

Yeah the WEC is awesome for exposing the FW and BW divisions! They have a great roster of FW's. Jose Aldo and Josh Grispi are a couple of other great FW's they have.

If they could somehow get Imanari and Mishima then the FW division would be off the charts!

Imanari would be an excellent pick-up, because he can fight in the 145 class and the 135 class. Basically, he can win both belts, which would be awesome. Hell, he's already beaten Mike Brown. I think he'd have a chance against Torres (Someone like Imanari has a chance against anyone due to his nasty leg-locks).

The FW division is solid stuff. Wagnney's the butta, as is Tamura. You also got Aldo, who will be champion and Faber. Throw in some Garcia, Grispi, Takaya, Cub and Brown and you got a nice set of fighters.

And....there will be more. I hope guys like Rumina Sato, Hioki, Carvalho and Mishima make their way to the WEC.

The talent in the FW dibvision (and BW for that matter) is so deep, WEC is probably my favorite org. now. All they need is Kid and Inoue (Takeshi).
