The Sunday Junkie: Oct. 31 edition
This past week’s UFC-WEC merger announcement is one of the biggest stories of 2010, and MMA fans discussed all aspects of it in today’s edition of The Sunday Junkie, our weekly reader-feedback feature.
While it seems to be a positive for fans, can the same be said for fighters? Will they struggle to get booked fights? And why is the WEC lightweight title going to be unified instead of simply eliminated like the WEC’s previously merged weight classes?
Additionally, could the merger open the door for women’s MMA, and does it now make sense to make WEC star Urijah Faber a coach on “The Ultimate Fighter” reality series?
