World Extreme Cagefighting on Sunday night made their live debut on the Versus network. Before a rabid crowd at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, Urijah Faber once again proved why he is currently the face of the WEC.
Brazilian Jiu-jitsu expert Rani Yahya spoiled Mark Hominick’s WEC debut. Brian Stann continued to establish his status as a contender in the WEC light heavyweight class. And Alex Karalexis, a veteran of the inaugural season of The Ultimate Fighter, ran his winning streak to four straight.
Scott Petersen was there for MMAWeekly.com to capture all of the action.
