Bart Palaszewski vs Alex Karalexis WEC fight in the works for Dec. 3

International Fight League (IFL) veteran Bart Palaszewski (29-11) will likely fight season one "The Ultimate Fighter" alum Alex Karalexis (9-3) in a lightweight match up at WEC 37 at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada, on December 3, according to MMAWeekly.com.

Palaszewski lost his last three bouts under the IFL banner to three very respectable opponents -- Deividas Taurosevicius, Chris Horodecki and Jim Miller -- before rebounding with a second round knockout win over UFC washout Jeff Cox at Adrenaline MMA 1 back in June.

He's a cagey veteran with a well rounded game. During his six-year, 40-fight career he's shared the cage with top fighters like JZ Cavalcante, Clay Guida, Horodecki (twice), Ryan Schultz and others.

This will be his promotional debut for the WEC.

Karalexis, on the other hand, will be making his fifth straight start for the organization. He had won his previous three bouts before falling to Ed Ratcliffe at WEC 31 last December. This will be his first fight since that defeat, meaning he will have spent nearly a year on the sidelines when he enters the cage for this fight.

Before the loss to Ratcliffe, Karalexis' only other two losses came in the UFC to Kenny Florian and Jason Von Flue.

This should be a fun fight for the December 3 show. Both of these guys like to trade blows and finish fights. And with this being Palaszewski's first fight for the promotion and Karalexis' first fight in almost a year, the smart money says these guys are going to come to fight.

The WEC 37 main event will feature WEC Bantamweight Champion Miguel Torres defending his 135-pound title against Manny Tapia. To check out the developing fight card and rumors click here.
