World Extreme Cagefighting on Monday added another bout to its June 1 event scheduled to take place at the Arco Arena in Sacramento, Calif., announcing Chase Beebe vs. Will Ribeiro.
This will Beebe’s first bout since losing his WEC bantamweight title to current champion Miguel Torres, who is also fighting on the card. Prior to the loss, Beebe had been on a six-fight winning streak. He’ll be looking to use Ribeiro as a stepping-stone back towards title contention.
Ribeiro will be fighting outside of Brazil for the first time in his professional career when he steps into the cage against Beebe. He has amassed an 8-1 record, with five of his eight victories coming by way of knockout, including his three most recent bouts. Beebe will be the toughest test of his career and an opportunity to prove his mettle on the world stage.
WEC 34 in Sacramento features a main event pitting featherweight champion Urijah Faber against former UFC lightweight titleholder Jens Pulver and newly crowned bantamweight champion Miguel Torres making the first defense of his title, taking on Yoshiro Maeda.
