 This event is basically a UFC event. Reed Harris nowhere in sight according to this story:


Joe Rogan says he and Mike Goldberg slated for "Aldo vs. Faber" broadcast

While "WEC 48: Aldo vs. Faber" represents World Extreme Cagefighting's first effort on pay-per-view, the broadcast will apparently have a very familiar feel.

Longtime UFC broadcaster Joe Rogan announced today on his Twitter account that he and on-air partner Mike Goldberg will be handling broadcast duties for the April 24 event.

Featuring a heavily anticipated main event between WEC featherweight champion Jose Aldo and former champ Urijah Faber, WEC 48 takes place at ARCO Arena in Sacramento, Calif.

WEC officials weren't immediately unavailable to confirm the report when contacted byMMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com).

The move, if official, is the latest news that familiar faces within the UFC will be working closely with the WEC on the organization's first pay-per-view effort to ensure a successful venture.

A recent announcement regarding a forthcoming media call promoting the event indicated that UFC president Dana White while be on the conference line as host of the call. His position was listed as UFC/WEC president. WEC general manger Reed Harris, who generally handles such duties, was not listed as an attendee on the call, though his absence was not explained.

Additionally, the entire April 24 fight card was initially announced as "UFC presents WEC 48: Aldo vs. Faber."

Recent re-branding of the event now sees the WEC's website referring to the event solely as "Aldo vs. Faber," and an event listing for the star-studded fight card was today added to the UFC's official website. The event is also referred to solely as "Aldo vs. Faber" on the UFC's website.

people say this about every PPV.

I wont be buying this either because I think there is way too many PPVs.

But this card is way better then say UFC 108, 72, 103, 99 etc..

I wonder if Dana and UFC decided to take a bigger role when they realized the PPV will not do well.

As we speak Goldie is trying to determine if Aldo or Faber will be carrying the Explosive label for the fight

this X 100

especially with all the cards UFC puts on now... watering down of the product would cease to be an issue


Then you'd still essentially be paying for something you used to get for free on Versus.

Nope. We are getting 7 free cards of WEC on Versus this year.

Every WEC card is a great freaking card. Why do we want to ruin something like that?

Triplicate - Goldberg commentating on a bunch of fighters he doesn't know sounds like a disaster.

 How does knowing them improve his delivery of the word "teep"?

Agree. Would also give the UFC a little more depth to have the featherweight and bantamweight divisions.

 Dana has been talking about 150,000 buys which is 3 times as many as most industry predictions. Just imagine if Goldie and Rogan bolted for Affliction. They'd still be in business.
