Condit vs Prater: WEC to feature three title fights live from Albuquerque on February 13

World Extreme Cagefighting (WEC) is putting three championships up for grabs live from the Santa Ana Star Center in Albuquerque, New Mexico on February 13.

Headlining the card will be Albuquerque native and WEC welterweight champion, Carlos Condit (21-4), as he defends his title against Thugjitsu's own, Carlo Prater (21-5-1).

Condit is fresh off an impressive submission victory over Brock Larson at WEC 29. He looks to cement his place as the WEC's top welterweight by avenging his first professional loss - that came at the hands of Prater during Fightworld 2 back in 2004.

Also on the card former UFC lightweight Jamie "The Worm" Varner (13-2) tries to dethrone WEC's lightweight juggernaut, "Razor" Rob McCullough (15-3). Varner was successful in his WEC debut against Sherron Leggett but will have all he can handle against McCullough who is undefeated (9-0) since 2004.

Rounding out the title bouts will be defending WEC bantamweight champion Chase Beebe (11-1) as he takes on submission master Miguel Torres (19-1). Beebe won the WEC title by defeating Eddie Wineland at WEC 26 last March but may find Torres - who has only one decision loss in 20 fights - a difficult hurdle to overcome.

The event will be televised live nationally on VERSUS beginning at 9:00 p.m. ET/6:00 p.m. PT. Tickets go on sale Saturday, January 12 at noon and are priced at $185, $115, $65, and $35. Tickets are available at or by calling 1-866-442-8849.

The remaining bouts for WEC: "Condit vs. Prater" have yet to be announced. Stay tuned to for the all upcoming details.

*UPDATE* Manny Tapia (9-0-1) vs. Antonio Banuelos (14-4) has been added to the WEC lineup for February's event.
