    Kinda disappointed in the WEC, they have Condit fighting Larson again. Their welterweight division is so shallow they are having to make this fight again. They is a ton of great WW out there, pick up some fighters or dissolve the WW division into the UFC.

    Pick up Jake Shields for a rematch with Condit.

    I'm going to see this live from my apartment. Brown and Garcia should be a great fight. Both are coming off impressive knockouts.

    I hope Brown stomps a hole in Garcia and walks it dry.

    WEC are doing some great things. This is another good card from them but i do agree that the WW division needs more depth, there is alot of fighters at 170 in the UFC so maybe the guys who are holding up the rear should be moved to WEC. For example Gono, Yoshida, another name to throw in could be Ryo Chonan, and what about someone popular like Matt Serra he's a class act but could probably never challenge for a title again.

    An announced WEC 39 championship rematch between WEC welterweight title-holder Carlos Condit (22-4) and Brock Larson (24-2) has been scrapped – and the WEC's entire welterweight division could be eliminated, as well.

    Varner vs Cowboy as co-main event???

    UFN 18 carlose vs Kampman badass..
