WEC Lightweight Champion Ben Henderson will defend his 155-pound title for the first time against the man he defeated, Donald Cerrone, to earn his shot at unifying the title in the first place.
Henderson and Cerrone will collide in a rematch at WEC 48, which is scheduled for the Arco Arena in Sacramento, Calif., on April 24, in the co-featured fight of the night. And It will certainly help the the promotion sell its first-ever pay-per-view (PPV) event at its desired price of $44.99.
That's because their first encounter at WEC 43 was one of the best fights in all of 2009.
Henderson most recently unified the lightweight titles at WEC 46, tapping out then lightweight champion Jamie Varner via guillotine choke. Cerrone, meanwhile, choked out Ed Ratcliff at WEC 45 last Dec.
"Cowboy's" critical victory was more than likely the key to getting another crack at "Smooth."
In addition to the rematch between Henderson and Cerrone, WEC 48 will feature a main event between former 145-pound champion, Urijah Faber, and reigning division kingpin, Jose Aldo.
So far so good -- WEC appears to be assembling an attractive card. But do you need to see more to open your wallets?
Sound off, maniacs!
