World Extreme Cagefighting on Thursday announced two more bouts for WEC 47, which is scheduled for March 6 in Columbus, Ohio. Newcomer Bendy Casimir will face Ricardo Lamas, and Deividas Taurosevicius is matched with L.C. Davis at the Nationwide Arena.
Casimir (19-5-2), fighting out of France, is 15-1 in his last 16 bouts, including a victory over Ultimate Fighter alumnus Andre Winner. He has spent the majority of his career fighting in Europe and Japan.
Fighting out of Chicago, Lamas (7-1) is 2-1 since stepping in the cage for the WEC. His only stumble was a TKO loss to Urijah Faber teammate Danny Castillo.
A Lithuanian fighter, Taurosevicius (12-3) has quickly emerged as a force in the WEC featherweight class. He knocked off former King of the Cage champion Javier Vazquez in his promotional debut then won a unanimous decision over the previously undefeated Mackens Semerzier at WEC 46 in January.
One of the more underrated fighters in the division, L.C. Davis (15-2) has only lost to Wagnney Fabiano and upset artist Michihiro Omigawa. Like Taurosevicius, he also defeated Vazquez in his WEC debut, and holds wins over Diego Nunes, Bao Quach, Conor Heun, and other notables.
