The fight card for the WEC’s debut in Columbus, OH is filling up fast as the promotion announced the addition of a lightweight bout pitting Danny Castillo against Anthony Pettis in a preliminary fight on the show.
The promotion made the announcement about the fight on Monday evening.
Castillo currently holds a 3-2 record in the WEC with wins over notable fighters such as Ricardo Lamas and Rafael Dias. His losses come by way of two of the top fighters in the WEC’s lightweight division in Donald Cerrone and Shane Roller.
The California based fighter has been working with Urijah Faber’s Team Alpha Male including UFC lightweight, Justin Buccholz, and bantamweight stand-out, Joseph Benavidez.
Anthony Pettis makes his third appearance in the WEC cage following a win over Mike Campbell in his first fight, and a loss to veteran fighter, Bart Palaszewsi, in his last bout.
The lightweight competitor works with a top camp under famed trainer, Duke Roufus, and is hoping to get back on the winning track after a disappointing split decision loss in his last trip to the WEC.
The bout between Castillo and Pettis will be a part of the untelevised preliminary portion of the card at this time.
