The WEC will merge with the UFC in 2011

It finally happened. After years of people claiming they ‘overheard something at a bar’ and (or) ‘intercepted text messages’, the inevitable happened: The WEC has merged with UFC. Everything, folks. The UFC will add two additional weight classes and will combine the 155lb talent into UFC’s lightweight division in 2011. Hold on to whatever seat your butt is nestled in and get prepared for a lightweight title unification bout. Ariel Helwani broke the news just minutes ago on MMAFighting and there’s really not much to say other than ‘Holy [expletive]’. Check out this interview of Dana White breaking down what we all can expect in the upcoming year. [Source]
