The Last WEC Event Ever: Live Results Tonight on CagePotato

After nine-and-a-half years of thrilling events, Wold Extreme Cagefighting will take its final bow tonight at the Jobing.com Arena in Glendale, Arizona. But even aside from the historical significance, there will be a lot on the line at WEC 53. In the main event, Ben Henderson and Anthony Pettis battle to become the UFC’s #1 lightweight contender. Dominick Cruz and Scott Jorgensen meet to determine the UFC’s first-ever 135-pound champion. And a host of top 155′ers like Donald Cerrone, Chris Horodecki, Kamal Shalorus, Zhang Tie Quan and Jamie Varner will be fighting to keep their jobs in an unforgiving post-UFC-merger market.

CagePotato.com will be liveblogging the Versus broadcast beginning at 9 p.m. ET / 6 p.m. PT. Come back for all the live results, and to share your fond memories of one of the greatest MMA promotions to ever do it. WEC 53′s full lineup is after the jump…

My favorite WEC memory would be the three year reign of Faber coming to a end at the hands of Brown,.....I swear my jaw hit the floor.

Honorable mention....pick any Aldo fight,....the guy is a wrecking machine.

I have floor seats for the fights tonight. If you see a 6'5" handsome* dude wearing a CP shirt, that's me.

This may be a dumb question, but since elbows on the ground are illegal in AZ MMA were there rule concessions or did the WEC get some kind of exception?
