Rafael Assuncao And Yves Jabouin Promoted To Televised Portion Of WEC 43

Due to an injury sufferred by Alex Karalexis, the WEC has decided to promote the featherweight fight between Rafael Assuncao and Yves Jabouin to the televised portion of their September 2nd WEC 43 event on Versus.

It was reported earlier this week that Karalexis had to pull out of his bout against Anthony Pettis due to an undisclosed injury. Instead of finding a replacement, the organization opted to move forward with the 11-bout roster they already have in place.

WEC 43 will take place from the Covelli Center in Youngstown, Ohio, and will be headlined by an open-interim welterweight title bout between top contender Donald Cerrone and Benson Henderson.
