World Extreme Cagefighting started as a small promotion in Northern California more than five years ago. The first 24 shows stayed in California, but recently the company was purchased by Zuffa, the parent company of the Ultimate Fighting Championship, and their latest offerings take place inside The Joint at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Now, with the muscle of such a large company backing them, the WEC’s Scott Adams and Reed Harris are able to take the promotion to the new heights that they had always dreamed of. Their next show, on March 24th, returns to the Hard Rock with headline fights including John Alessio vs. Carlos Condit for the WEC Welterweight Championship and Urijah Faber defending his featherweight crown.
Tonight WEC matchmaker and founder Scott Adams joins Damon & Jeff on MMAWeeklyRadio.com to talk about the rise of one of the longest running promotions in the United States and what we can expect, not only next Saturday, but in the future as WEC continues to grow.
Check out the show live tonight at 6pm PT / 9pm ET on MMAWeeklyRadio.com.
