World Extreme Cagefighting has announced the bulk of the card for its next event on June 7, which takes place in Sacramento, Calif., at the Arco Arena. Hometown hero Urijah Faber headlines WEC 41 looking to reclaim the title from WEC featherweight champion Mike Brown.

In the main event, Brown defends his title against the man he defeated to win the title. Brown comes off a successful title defense over Leonard Garcia at WEC 39, while Faber submitted Jens Pulver at WEC 38.

In the co-main event, Brazilian featherweight wunderkind Jose Aldo faces off with Southern California featherweight Cub Swanson. Aldo comes off a rather easy stoppage victory over Chris Mickle at WEC 39, while Swanson won a decision over Hiroyuki Takaya at WEC 37.

Rounding out the main card is a lightweight showdown between fan favorite Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone and undefeated WEC newcomer James Krause, while former UFC lightweight champion Jens Pulver meets East Coast featherweight Josh Grispi in featherweight action.

Highlighting the undercard is the featherweight debut of Ultimate Fighter 5 runner-up Manny Gamburyan taking on undefeated featherweight John Franchi. Mike Campbell moves down to lightweight to take on WEC newcomer Anthony Pettis. NCAA wrestling standout Scott Jorgensen faces off with Chuck Liddlell’s teammate Antonio Banuelos.
