RIO RANCHO,
N.M. – The fighters for Wednesday night’s World Extreme Cagefighting
event weighed in on Tuesday before a small crowd at the fight venue, the Santa
Ana Star Center.

 

WEC 32
features three title fights, including hometown favorite and welterweight
champion Carlos Condit defending against Carlo Prater. Condit will be looking
to avenge the first loss of his career in this bout, which Prater handed to him
three-and-a-half years ago, oddly enough on a small event in Albuquerque. Both
fighters made wait, with Condit even tipping the scales 2.5 pounds below the
170-pound limit.

 

Condit,
however, appeared confident after weighing-in saying, “I just have to take it
to him.”

 

With a win
over Condit under his belt, Prater was also confident, but knowing that this is
a different fight than in was years ago.

 

“I have to
be my best ever,” saying what he has to do to defeat Condit. Prater added,
“I’ve always respected him and his team.”

 

Champion
“Razor” Rob McCullough and challenger Jamie Varner were both dead on for the
155-pound limit of their lightweight title bout. In a battle for the
bantamweight belt, current champion Chase Beebe and his challenger, Miguel
Torres both made weight without a problem.

 

Micah
Miller, who faces Chance Farrar in a featherweight bout, initially weighed-in
at 147.5 pounds, which is 1.5 pounds over the allowable limit for a non-title
bout. He returned about half an hour later, weighing in at 146.0 pounds,
keeping the fight on track.

 

WEC 32 will
