With only two WEC cards to go before the UFC absorbs the organization, all eyes are on WEC 52: Faber vs. Mizugaki on Thursday, Nov. 11 from The Pearl at the Palms in Las Vegas.
“This card is filled with the fastest, most explosive competitors in our sport and we expect to give fans another awesome night of action on November 11,” WEC General Manager Reed Harris.
Former WEC featherweight champion “The California Kid” Urijah Faber makes his highly-anticipated 135-pound debut as he makes the cut to bantamweight in search of his second world title reign. He’ll take on one of the division’s toughest in Japanese striking sensation Takeya Mizugaki.
“Urijah Faber’s debut at 135-pounds is something both fans and fellow fighters have been waiting to see,” Harris said. “His first fight in the division pits him against Mizugaki, who has fought the best-of-the-best at bantamweight. The main event, plus the Bowles-Fabiano, Grispi-Koch and Mendes-Vazquez fights, makes this a special night at the Palms.”
