After much debate and speculation, WEC 44 will be held on November 18th inside the The Pearl at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada. The show will be headlined by WEC featherweight champion Mike Brown defending his strap against top contender Jose Aldo.
Although an official announcement has not been released by the company regarding the fight card, the title bout and the venue are pretty much done deals at this point.
As customary, the event will be broadcast on Versus Network, so DirecTV subscribers will not be able to watch the event unless an agreement is reached by then.
Brown was last seen taking a convincing unanimous decision victory over former WEC featherweight stud Urijah Faber at WEC 41 in June. He has been prefect through his last 10 fights, including two wins over Faber.
Speaking of win streaks, Aldo has won eight in a row. He stakes claim to an impressive 15-1 mark overall, however he has never faced a fighter the caliber of Brown before.
