WEC 36 Card Finalized for 11/5

(Props: Bloody Elbow)

The WEC has released the final lineup for next Wednesday’s event at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Florida. Here’s what we’ll be seeing:

Main Card (airing live on Versus, 8 p.m. ET)
Urijah Faber vs. Mike Brown (for featherweight championship)
Paulo Filho vs. Chael Sonnen (for middleweight championship)
Jens Pulver vs. Leonard Garcia (featherweights)
Jake Rosholt vs. Nissen Osterneck (middleweights)
Rob McCullough vs. Donald Cerrone (lightweights)

David Avellan vs. Aaron Simpson (light-heavyweights)
Jose Aldo vs. Jonathan Brookins (featherweights)
Alex Schoenauer vs. Steve Steinbeiss (light-heavyweights)
Danny Castillo vs. Ed Ratcliff (lightweights)
Yoshiro Maeda vs. Rani Yahya (bantamweights)

The video promo above wonders if Mike Brown is the man to stop Urijah Faber’s reign of dominance in the WEC. Most likely, he isn’t — which should explain why Faber’s betting line is as high as -450 on sports wagering sites. The fight to really pay attention to here is Paulo Filho vs. Chael Sonnen. Before the controversial armbar stoppage in their first match last December, Chael Sonnen was dominating Filho, beating the middleweight champ standing and scoring multiple takedowns. Filho entered treatment for chemical dependency shortly after the fight, and hasn’t competed since; Sonnen last fought at WEC 33 in March, where he won a decision over Bryan Baker. It’ll be interesting to see where Filho’s head is at. And of course, there’s no way Lil’ Evil vs. Bad Boy will be a dull fight. Not bad for free TV…

This does look great. I really hope the WEC keeps everything that they have now. Love the UFC but hate watching it rule the world. I want more MMA!

Pulver vs. Garcia should be a fantastic fight. I'm really excited about that one.

I have been waiting for the Pulver/Garcia fight for what seems like for ever!
Gonna call it now that its gonna be Fight of the Night!

Paulo Filho vs. Chael Sonnen - is the other possible fight of the night, though I have doubts since Paulo has not fought in a while.

Either way you cant miss with this card!

A good card, for sure.... but I'm waiting for the one after this with Torres vs. Tapia. That should be a great one.

I hope to high hell than Sonnen puts Filho away for real this time. Lets see who shows up ringside with these boys. If Sonnen can take Filho out, then hell, maybe the UFC will have what they badly need: A real middle-weight contender.

5 great fights. The WEC consistently puts a good product out there. Can't wait.
