World Extreme Cagefighting (WEC) is set to go live with "Aldo vs. Faber," their first-ever pay-per-view (PPV) fight card for the promotion's return trip to the Arco Arena scheduled for April 24 in Sacramento, CA.
And Zuffa is bringing in some familiar faces to help get it done.
Longtime UFC broadcast partners Joe Rogan and Mike Goldberg have gotten the call to fill in for Todd Harris and Stephan Bonnar on a night that will see a couple of championship titles on the line.
WEC 48 features a featherweight championship title fight between the promotion's greatest marketing asset, "The California Kid" Urijah Faber, and the seemingly invincible 145-pound champion, Jose "Junior" Aldo.
Also booked for the star-studded event is newly-crowned lightweight champion Ben "Smooth" Henderson as he answers the call of Donald "Cowboy" Cerrone. Mike Brown will also take part in the action when he collides with Manny "Pitbull" Gamburyan.
MMAmania.com will provide LIVE blow-by-blow, round-by-round coverage of WEC 48, beginning with the PPV telecast at 10 p.m. ET. In addition, we will deliver up-to-the-minute quick results of all the under card action much earlier on fight night.
