Heads-Up: WEC 38 Next Weekend

(Varner on Cerrone: "If he goes toe to toe with me, he’s a dead man.")

Though it’s being swallowed in the collective hype of UFC 93, UFC 94, and Affliction: Day of Reckoning, the WEC is holding their next event this coming Sunday (1/25) at the San Diego Sports Arena in San Diego, CA. For once, Urijah Faber‘s fight won’t be the most interesting one on the card. Sure, his three-round rematch with Jens Pulver will be a must-see for California Kid/Lil’ Evil fans, but the real heat is behind the lightweight championship main event, in which defending champ Jamie Varner looks to make his second belt-defense against Donald Cerrone, the undefeated Greg Jackson-product who was one-half of WEC 36′s best fight. You can watch the action live on Versus beginning at 9:30 p.m. ET/6:30 p.m. PT; the full lineup is below…

Jamie Varner vs. Donald Cerrone (for lightweight championship)
Urijah Faber vs. Jens Pulver (FW)
Danillo Villefort vs. Mike Campbell (WW)
Jose Aldo vs. Rolando Perez (FW)

Benson Henderson vs. Anthony Njokuani (LW)
Edgar Garcia vs. Hiromitsu Miura (WW)
Dominick Cruz vs. Ian McCall (FW)
Scott Jorgenson vs. Frank Gomez (BW)
Blas Avena vs. Jesse Lennox (WW)
Charlie Valencia vs. Seth Dikun (BW)

Varner's gonna whup that ass. Cowboy's tough but not as good as him. We need more love for WEC, they put on some great fights.

WTF is up with the WEC?? How do they choose which matches end up on T.V., pull straws??

The Torres/Tapia televised undercard was terrible! We should've gotten to see Swanson/Takaya (eventual fight of the night) and Palaszewski's KO of the night. They even f*cked us over from seeing McCullough/Cerrone's fight of the night. No offense to Danillo Villefort or Mike Campbell, but Dominick Cruz vs. Ian McCall is gonna be a WAR and WEC has f*cked us over once again!!!
