Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Three Championship Belts on the Line at “WEC: Condit vs. Prater”

(Carlos Condit: “You’ll never grow old, and you’ll never die…but you must feed!”)

The WEC has announced the full lineup of fights for their next event, which will go down Feburary 13 at the Santa Ana Star Center in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Dubbed “Wec: Condit vs. Prater,” the event features three championship bouts. Welterweight champ Carlos Condit (thought by many to be one of the top ten welterweights in the world) will try to avenge a 2004 loss to contender Carlo Prater; lightweight champion “Razor” Rob McCullough faces off against Jamie “The Worm” Varner; and bantamweight top dog Chase Beebe defends his belt against 19-1 jiu-jitsu sensation Miguel Torres. Also fighting on the card are undefeated Mexican bantamweight Manny Tapia, 19-year-old Boston native Josh Grispi (who already has a 10-1 record in the featherweight division), UFC vet Leonard Garcia, former featherweight title challenger Chance Farrar, and the WEC debut of K-1/Shooto star Hiroyuki “Streetfight Bancho” Takaya.

WEC’s last event, featuring Urijah Faber and Jens Pulver, turned out to be one of the most entertaining MMA cards of 2007, and this one has just as much potential to be a killer. “WEC: Condit vs. Prater” can be seen live on VERSUS on 2/13 beginning at 9 p.m. ET (6 p.m. PT). The lineup is as follows:

Carlos Condit vs. Carlo Prater (Welterweights)
Rob McCullough vs. Jamie Varner (Lightweights)
Chase Beebe vs. Miguel Torres (Bantamweights)
Josh Grispi vs. Mark Hominick (Featherweights)
Manny Tapia vs. Antonio Banuelos (Bantamweights)
Scott Jorgensen vs. Jesse Moreng (Lightweights)
Charlie Valencia vs. Yoshiro Maeda (Bantamweights)
Hiroyuki Takaya vs. Leonard Garcia (Featherweights)
Micah Miller vs. Chance Farrar (Featherweights)
Del Hawkins vs. Ox Wheeler (Bantamweights)
