Great card! Especially stoked for Siver/Wiman and Soti/Dunham. Let's just hope that Snore Fitch doesn't lie on BJ for 15 minutes though.

if they do headline I see pretty low sales. Faber and Cruz are hardly that big names outside guys who've followed WEC for a while. Probably one of the lower ones for a while unless they switch Penn to main event.

I don't necessarily agree with that, Urijah's a pretty massive name, got a huge reception when he entered the Octagon the other week. With Penn vs Condit on the same card that's looking pretty sick to me. I reckon it'll do more than decent numbers.

Faber has headlined a PPV before and the WEC PPV exceeded expectations. He is likely the biggest name to come out of the WEC and he is headlining a card with both Penn and Tito on the card. Both Tito and BJ carry enough wait to draw what ever buys the WEC guys lose while establishing Faber and Cruz as legit headliners. In essence Penn and Tito will be giving these guys the rub.

Yeah there will definitely be some changes.I dont care how big faber was in wec hes not about to headline just off 1 fight in the ufc.. The card is also too lighter weight friendly.Remove the bj fight (which will be scraped if they cant find a replacement for fitch) & its basically a card full of lw/bw = not the biggest draws

To Live is 2 suffer, 2 survive? well that is 2 find meaning in the suffering
