WEC 46

WEC 46 was on The Score last night, and it was a really fun show to watch. For those who haven't seen World Extreme Cagefighting before, it's the UFC's lighter-weight sister organization that showcases fighters in the 155lbs. and under weight classes. Typically, a WEC show is all action - fast, furious fights and dazzling submissions. Last night's show was a pretty good representative of that style. Former 145 lbs. champ Urijah Faber got an impressive win in front of his hometown crowd, which should set up a title fight against champ Jose Aldo, and Ben Henderson became the undisputed WEC lightweight champion, beating champion Jamie Varner by choke in the third round. I love both Faber and Henderson, so I was happy.

I watched the show with my wife, who is a big UFC fan. She'd never seen WEC before, and was very impressed with the speed and skill level of the WEC fighters and we're both looking forward to the next live WEC show.

And, yes, UFC is nuts for not putting some of these WEC guys on UFC PPVs and exposing them to a wider audience.
