WEC 48: Aldo vs. Faber
Date: Apr 24, 2010
Location: Sacra

mento, Calif.
Venue: ARCO Arena
Broadcast: Pay-per-view – Spike TV

As WEC “World Extreme Cage fighting” prepares for its first pay-per-view show, it’s looking more and more like a UFC pay-per-view each day.

The Main Event of the night brings us the current WEC Featherweight Champion Jose Aldo (16-12) against the “California Kid” Urijah Faber (23-3).

Also on the card we have a rematch between current WEC Lightweight champion Ben Henderson (11-1) squaring off with Donald Cerrone (11-2-0-1). The two met at WEC 43 with Henderson taking the unanimous decision. Another featherweight bout, between former titleholder Mike Brown and UFC veteran Manny Gamburyan, is also featured on the pay-per-view portion of the April 24, 2010 fight card at the ARCO Arena in Sacramento, Calif.

Jose Aldo vs. Urijah Faber

Urijah Faber defended the WEC Featherweight title five times before losing the belt to Mike Brown in November of 2008. Faber did get a rematch with Brown, which he did lose via unanimous decision. In his last fight he looked very sharp in submitting Raphael Assuncao via rear naked choke. Will Aldo once again dispose of another opponent or Will we see the hometown hero Faber win back his belt?

Aldo is riding a nine-fight winning streak, en route to an overall record of 16-1. The deadly Brazilian annihilated then-champ Mike Brown at WEC 44 to capture the crown. Yes, that is indeed the same Mike Brown that holds two title fight wins over Faber.

WEC 48 preliminary bouts will air live on Spike an hour before the pay-per-view starts, just as they often do prior to UFC

pay-per-views. UFC commentators Mike Goldberg and Joe Rogan will handle broadcast duties for the event. This will mark the first time that WEC fights have aired on Spike, and another major sign that Zuffa (parent company of both the WEC and UFC) wants to make sure every UFC fan is aware of the WEC’s first pay-per-view.

Leonard Garcia (13-5-1) vs. Chan Sung Jung (10-1) and Alex Karalexis (10-4) vs. Anthony Pettis (8-1) will air live on Sipke TV at 9 p.m. ET, 6 p.m PT.
