All the fighters slated to compete in tomorrow night’s “WEC 48: Aldo vs. Faber” pay-per-view took to the scales inside the Arco Arena in Sacramento, California.
Reigning WEC poster boy and former featherweight champ Urijah Faber will look to reclaim his title against current 145-pound king Jose Aldo in the card’s featured contest.
Faber owns a ridiculous 23-3 professional record, however the charismatic superstar has dropped two of his last four contests. Both losses came in championship bouts against Mike Brown.
Aldo, who holds an impressive 16-1 pro mark, has been tagged by many as a younger and longer version of Faber. The Brazilian captured the belt last November at WEC 44 when he earned a vicious second round TKO over Brown.
