I think that's great news! There is some great talent in the WEC, and they are very exciting to watch. It would be nice to see a bigger spotlight on the lighter weight divisions. The matches they put on are exciting to watch.

Most free WEC matches I've seen have been better than the PPV matches the UFC has to offer. Now I feel like they're going to make WEC PPV for good now (hopefully not).

There wont be a WEC to make PPV.

There will be atleast 4 UFC events on Versus which most likely will heavily feature WEC rosters with some UFC.

This is good and bad. I'm happy that the lighter fighter will get a chance to make more money and more people will see them now.

That sucks, they'll probably save all the big guns for PPV and all the up and comers for Versus.

Jose Aldo will be on UFC 125 New Years Day and the WEC lightweight champ will fight UFC champ to unify belts.

Ben henderson/Anthony Pettis vs. Frankie Edgar/Gray Maynard

Business wise this is the smartest move the UFC can make. There were semi-stars in the WEC who could have been making a ton of money but weren't because the WEC wasn't making a ton of money. Could you imagine what Faber would have been making in the UFC if his weight class was there when he was champ? Kid was a fan favorite and gained noteriety from ESPN and other sports writers/companies. He wasn't making what he should have been. Now they are all on the same payscale!!!!
