The WEC made the official announcement on Thursday, Jan. 21, that Deividas Taurosevicius will meet L.C. Davis, and Ricardo Lamas will welcome Bendy Casimir to the promotion.
Taurosevicius is coming off a dominant victory over submission ace Mackens Semerzier at WEC 46 this past Jan. He began his career in the WEC just one fight prior with decision victory over Javier Vasquez.
Davis is rolling off consecutive decision victories over Diego Nunes and Javier Vasquez, at WEC 44 and WEC 42, respectively. Davis will look to continue his undefeated run in the WEC against the former-professional rugby player.
In the other announced match up, Casimir will look to continue his major run in the sport by making the move to the U.S.A. Casimir is 8-1 over the past two years and is currently riding a three fight winning streak.
Standing opposite Casimir come March 6 will be a very game Ricardo Lamas. Lamas rebounded from his WEC 42 lost to Danny Castillo by gaining a decision victory over James Krause at WEC 44 last Nov. The loss to Castillo was Lamas' lone flaw in his 7-1 professional mixed martial arts career.
WEC 47 is set for March 6 at Columbus, Ohio's Nationwide Arena. The main event of the evening is a bantamweight championship bout between Brian Bowles (champion) and Dominick Cruz (challenger). The card also features the return of two mixed martial arts legends in Miguel Torres and Jens Pulver.
