    God damn, I hope he just rips his arm off this time.

    Contrary to previous reports indicating that World Extreme Cagefighting would head to Sacramento, Calif. in March, MMAWeekly has learned that the promotion will return to Las Vegas at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino on March 26.

    Initial reports indicated that WEC would head to Sacramento to hold its March event, due to a headline bout featuring hometown fighter Urijah Faber defending his featherweight championship against former UFC lightweight champion Jens Pulver.

    For whatever reason, the bout did not materialize – although indications are that the bout will likely take place this summer – and the event was relocated back to the WEC’s home base of Las Vegas.

    Paulo Filho defending his middleweight championship against Chael Sonnen for the second time in three months will now headline the event. These two met at the last WEC with Filho winning by armbar, but not without controversy. The fight was stopped soon after Filho locked on the armbar, but without any indication of Sonnen giving up.

    In the co-main event, light heavyweight champion Doug Marshall will defend his title against U.S. Marine Brian Stann. Marshall comes off a submission victory over Cuban Ariel Gandulla at WEC 31, while Stann enters the fight undefeated at 5-0.

    In a No. 1 contenders match, Xtreme Couture welterweight John Alessio takes on powerful wrestler Brock Larson with the winner likely getting another crack at the welterweight championship.

    Carlos Condit is the current 170-pound titleholder and will be defending his belt against Carlo Prater on Feb. 13 in Albuquerque, N.M.

    Shooto standout Kenji Osawa will make his WEC debut as he takes on American Top Team fighter Chris Manuel in a bantamweight bout.

    In an intriguing lightweight bout, Texan submission fighter Marcus Hicks takes on eccentric striker Ed Ratcliff. Hicks comes off a submission victory over Scott McAfee at WEC 30, while Ratcliff stopped Ultimate Fighter alumnus Alex Karalexis at WEC 31.

    In a middleweight bout, Team Wildman fighter Bryan Baker takes on the debuting Nissen Osterneck.

  4. what makes you say that?

    Filho has shown that he has a lot of problems with guys that can shut down his takedowns, especially if they can play top control well.

    I see it going exactly like the second fight with BJ but far less stand up.

    I like how he didn't tap, but when he was put into the armbar he just screamed in pain.

    Right if his arm was broken in half it would have been "well.. he screamed why didn't you stop the fight?" :greddy:
