Urijah Faber will put his featherweight title on the line tonight against Chance Farrar during the World Extreme Cagefighting (WEC) event at "The Joint" in the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada, at 9 p.m. on the "Versus" cable channel.
The UFC has dedicated a great deal of coverage on its Web site regarding the event in the last few weeks. That's because Zuffa -- the parent company of the UFC -- owns the WEC.
I've received a good amount of emails from confused readers who probably don't know the entire history behind the close relationship between the promotions.
Accordingly, I felt a quick post was in order to clear up the situation. In addition, I want to remind our readers -- many of whom are mixed martial arts fans, not just UFC fans -- that there are some solid (and FREE) fights on this evening.
Despite remarks from the UFC that state otherwise, the WEC is viewed by many as a "feeder or farm" system for the UFC.
And with former UFC veterans such as Alex Karalexis, John Alessio and Brock Larson on this fight card alone -- alongside up and coming talent -- it seems rather apparent.
Regardless, tonight should be a solid night of action on the "Versus" network.
Here's a taste of what to expect:
