World Extreme Cage fighting has stocked the Nov. 18 fight card for WEC 44: Brown vs. Aldo.
WEC featherweight champion Mike Brown (22-4) will attempt the third defense of the title he won from the ever-popular Urijah Faber. He faces a formidable challenge from Brazilian fighter Jose Aldo (14-1), who has defeated all five of his WEC opponents by either knockout or TKO.
Also featured is a featherweight bout that is likely to produce a future challenger to the title. Leonard Garcia (13-4) is 3-1 since making the move from lightweight down to the WEC’s 145-pound division, his only loss being to Brown. He’d love a rematch, but first has to get past Manny Gamburyan (9-4), who also made the drop in weight to come to the WEC where he is 1-0.
