The highly anticipated Urijah Faber vs. Takeya Mizugaki fight isnâ€™t the only great bout on the WEC 52 fight card. Which of these contenders is the favorite? When and where will the event happen? How can you watch view it? Get the answers to all of these questions and much more below.
Okay, ladies and gentleman – probably mostly gentleman – this is the one we’ve been eagerly awaiting and itâ€™s almost here! As you might recall Faber and Mizugaki were initially supposed to fight at WEC 50 back in August, but the Japanese, Shooto style fighter wanted to wait for his opponentâ€™s knee to heal completely before facing him. Reportedly, he even turned down offers to fight other opponents because he has his mind set on beating the former World Extreme Cage fighting champâ€¦On snap, s**** about to go down!
Hereâ€™s the WEC 52 fight card:
Urijah Faber/Takeya Mizugaki
Josh Grispi/Erik Koch
Brian Bowles/Wagnney Fabiano
Chad Mendes/Javier Vazquez
Eddie Wineland/Damacio Page
Raphael Assuncao/LC Davis
Zack Micklewright/Dustin Poirier
Clint Godfrey/Michael McDonald
Cub Swanson/Mackens Semerzier
When and where for this thing? It will take place November 11, 2010 at The Pearl at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas, and it will air on Versusâ€¦Thank goodness itâ€™s free to watch! I think most MMA fans become annoyed when Dana White and his organization make these Pay-Per-View events.
