UFC bought WEC

This article was on MMAWEEKLY( MMA WEEKLY - Your #1 Source for Daily MMA News, Interviews, Multimedia, and More ) what do you guys think about this move. I could see it being a good move to help improve fighters coming into the UFC and also give fighters who have had some losses a place to go and still be able to get back into the UFC later on.

I think it is a good move, but I think it would suck if UFC went o HBO. If they still had there stuff on regular cable it would be great, but if they simply moved everything to HBO, that would suck

I wonder what they will do with the WEC; will they disband it or keep it going? If they keep it going they can use as a minor league for the UFC. They groom the fighters and weed out the cans. Or they could have bought the WEC and/or WFA to dismantle them to kill some of their competition. Either way it's a good business move.
