WEC 45: Takeya Mizugaki vs Damacio Page in the works for Dec. 19

Gritty bantamweights Takeya Mizugaki (12-3-2) and Damacio Page (12-4) have reportedly agreed to hook 'em up at WEC 45 on Dec. 19 in Las Vegas, according to

Mizugaki fought for the 135-pound title back in April, losing via unanimous decision to Miguel Torres in a "Fight of the Year" nominee. He rebounded with a victory over Jeff Curran, who left for Strikeforce earlier this week.

The Japanese import is one of the top contenders in the division and is considered by many a top five bantamweight in the world.

Damacio Page is coming off a first round submission victory at WEC 43 over Will Campuzano, marking his second victory in a row. His last loss came at WEC 35 to current divisional champion Brian Bowles.

Like Mizugaki, "The Angel of Death" is considered at the top of the bantamweight food chain.

After Miguel Torres’ upset loss to Brian Bowles at WEC 42, the WEC bantamweight division had been turned on it's head. The winner of this fight could conceivably get a title shot considering the division’s current landscape.

WEC 45 is set for Dec. 19, but the card is still in the works. A match up between Donald Cerrone and Ed Ratcliff was recently announced rumored as a possible main event for the WEC’s year end show.

Stay tuned to for news on this still-developing fight card.
