After an improbable and world-changing 17-year run in the fight biz, the UFC is finally set to crown its first bantamweight champion. The historic honor, and a sparkling new UFC belt, will go to the winner of Thursday night’s battle between Dominick Cruz and challenger Scott Jorgensen at WEC 53 in Glendale, Ariz. The 25-year-old Cruz, who previously lived and trained in Arizona for a time, feels like a man of destiny.

Always look forward to the WEC.  Too bad this is the last show.

I was always satisfied with WEC cards and the lighter fighter. I am happy with the enveloping by the UFC, but I hope they still showcase a fair amount of lighter guys on the PPV's and allow them to hold spots at the tiop end of the fight cards.

I really hope Scotty takes this one.  Hes a cool guy.  I trained a private session with Kit Cope at Wand Fight Team in Vegas, and then Kit and Scott came out to the Lexani Party at the Hardrock with us.  Scott now rolls 20" Lexani's on his Caddy now.

From a fighter perspective, i think absolving the WEC into the UFC is great. I was always looking forward to fighting in the WEC some day, but every fighters ultimate goal is the UFC. Now its likely to happen.

 

And this fight is an awesome first showcasing of a bantamweight title fight for the UFC. Both guys are fucking sick.

Will be neat to see a UFC title awarded on a non UFC show.

Hat being said, this will be a ridiculous card tomorrow night.

In all, there are 14 Lightweights fighting tonight.  Best of luck to all of them as I am sure many of the losers may get released.

I don't think the loser of Cerrone/Horodecki or Pettis/Henderson but I don't think the UFC has room for the losers of the other five LW bouts.

This is the bad side of the merger.

I almost looked like a genius calling the highlight reel KO

I had no doubt Anthony was going to win this one.

It was timely and fitting, monsieur.

 

 

Do you think it is good or bad that the merger is gonna happen now? i mean fuck WEC has been like a highlight reel of late. I really think it could  be a stand-alone brand with the tilts they have had this past year.

Great question.

 

Or does that highlight reel style of the smaller WEC fighters just incorporate intself into the UFC?

 

Curious how it plays out, and how many cards Zuffa has in a year.

Anybody else have a feeling Varner and Horodecki are going to get dropped?  Maybe both should try 145 out?
