WEC 51 Preview: Pay-per-view worthy card broadcast free to fans
According to WEC president Reed Harris, Thursday’s stacked “WEC 51: Aldo vs. Gamburyan” card was almost a pay-per-view event.
But because the Zuffa-owned promotion owes a certain number of events
per year to its cable broadcast partner Versus, and possibly because its
biggest bona fide star, Urijah Faber, can’t participate due to injury,
MMA fans get a pretty rich card for free.
MMAjunkie.com’s Steven Marrocco takes a look at some of the key matchups on the Versus broadcast main card, including an intriguing featherweight title match and the renewal of an intense lightweight rivalry.
