Three Changes Made To WEC 43 Fight Card, Lineup Set

Putting on this event hasn’t been the smoothest in WEC history, however it appears as though their WEC 43 fight card is finally set. With just a couple weeks before game time, the organization has made three changes to their October 10th roster.

The WEC has confirmed that Noah Thomas, Javier Vazquez and Will Campuzano will all serve as replacements to fight inside the AT&T Center in San Antonio, Texas.

WEC 43 was initially to be held on September 2nd at the Covelli Centre in Youngstown, Ohio, however the organization abruptly rescheduled the card for October 10th instead.

The night’s main event features an interim lightweight title bout between Donald Cerrone and Ben Henderson.

Cerrone holds a 10-1 professional record, however what’s more impressive is that although he’s a Muay Thai specialist, nine of his W’s have come via submissions. His only blemish came in a controversial technical decision loss to champion Jaime Varner at WEC 38 this past January.

Speaking of impressive records, Henderson holds a 9-1 mark, with his last two coming inside the WEC cages against Anthony Njokuani and most recently, Shane Roller. The former two-time NAIA collegiate wrestling All-American hasn’t lost an MMA fight since 2006.

Here is the finalized roster that will be competing in the night’s broadcast on Versus:

Preliminary Bouts:

Deividas Taurosevicius vs. Javier Vazquez
Charlie Valencia vs. Coty Wheeler
Manny Tapia vs. Eddie Wineland
Wagnney Fabiano vs. Erik Koch

Main Bouts:
