The final WEC production produced everything that MMA represents. There were great knock-outs accompanied by crisp striking skills, amazing chain wrestling transitions balanced out by the beauty of clean jiu-jitsu, and powerful hands matched by the evolution of good footwork and movement. The MMA world could not have asked for a better end to the WEC’s greatly appreciated nine year existence.
There were a ton of high expectations coming into Thursday night’s final WEC card, held at the Jobbing.com Center in Glendale, Arizona. The night was highlighted by two magnificent title fights and a surplus of knock out power. WEC President Reed Harris stated in the post-fight press conference that tonight “was one of the best events we’ve ever put on”. He went on to say, “These guys always come through, and tonight was the pinnacle of that”. There was no arguing with his words. The card was packed with top WEC talent, which can now officially be claimed as UFC talent.
