WEC tickets at Covelli Centre in Youngstown, Ohio, for 'Cerrone vs. Henderson' on Sept. 2 on sale soon

Tickets for an upcoming World Extreme Cagefighting (WEC) show at the Covelli Centre in Youngstown, Ohio, on Sept. 2, are scheduled to go on sale to the general public on Thursday, July 9 at 10 a.m. ET.

WEC Newsletter subscribers can pick up their presale tickets a day early, starting Wednesday, July 8 at 10 a.m. ET. To take advantage of presale tickets, users must register for the WEC newsletter through WEC.tv.

The event, expected to be dubbed WEC 43, is the first-ever WEC event to be held in the Buckeye State. Lightweights Donald Cerrone and Benson Henderson are expected to headline the event, competing for the interim division title that is now up for grabs with Jamie Varner sidelined indefinitely with a hand injury.

A former professional bull rider, "Cowboy" most recently blasted rising prospect James Krause at WEC 41 en route to a dominating first round submission (rear naked choke). The Greg Jackson-trained Cerrone now boasts a 10-1 record with 1 no contest, with his lone loss coming to Varner at WEC 38 via controversial technical split decision, after Cerrone delivered an illegal knee to a grounded opponent midway through the fifth and final round.

A grappler and former two-time NAIA collegiate wrestling All-American, Henderson (9-1) has lived up to his nickname "Smooth" since debuting in the WEC in January. Fighting out of Glendale, AZ, the 25-year-old scored a quick technical knockout of Shane Roller in his last appearance at WEC 40 in April and has finished both his fights in the WEC.

WEC 43 tickets can be purchased through StubHub.com (Note: StubHub often has seats available even if the event is "sold out"). The WEC 43 main card will air live on Versus at 9 p.m. ET/ 6 p.m. PT on fight night.

The event in Youngstown could likely draw fans from both the Cleveland and Pittsburgh markets. A 5,000-seat arena, the Covelli Centre has hosted sold-out boxing events in the past.

Expect more fights to be added to the card in the coming weeks and months ahead. For more on WEC 43 stay dialed in to MMAmania.com and remember to check out the entire WEC archive right here.
