WEC 26 Wiki Update Wiki

In the second-ever WEC event to be held under Zuffa, LLC management, WEC 26 featured three title fights, in the welterweight, featherweight, and bantamweight divisions, respectively. Chase Beebe took the Bantamweight Championship from Eddie Wineland, Urijah Faber defended his Featherweight Championship against Dominick Cruz, and Carlos Condit won the Vacant Welterweight Championship by defeating John Alessio.


With the victory over Cruz, Faber had emerged as the most popular fighter in the WEC, and his potential for mainstream stardom was not lost on Zuffa, LLC, as he was marketed heavily as one of the best pound-for-pound fighters in the world from this point on.
