World Extreme Cagefighting (WEC) is best known as the smaller lighter little brother of the UFC, but the WEC is growing up. Two big match ups, Carlos Condit will defend his title against Brock Larson and PRIDE FC’s Paulo Filho makes his WEC debut against the always tough Joe Doerksen.
Condit will have his hands full with Brock Larson, who is monster, with his only defeat coming by way of Jon Fitch at Ultimate Fight Night 2. This fight could go either way, but I am going with Larson over the current Champion Condit.
Paulo Filho one of the best Middleweights in the world will be taking on Joe Doerksen on Sunday night. While Filho is the clear favorite, Doerksen is no push over. He holds an impressive record with wins over Chris Leben, Ed Herman, Patrick Cote and John Alessio. Doerksen should be a strong opponent to test the newest PRIDE inductee, as he makes his way to the UFC.
