WEC Folds Light Heavyweight And Middleweight Class

Although it had been rumored to be on the way for some time now, the WEC has made it official that they will be dropping the Middleweight and Light Heavyweight divisions to focus on the lighter weight classes. WEC Vice President Peter Dropick made the following statement regarding the drop:

“With every fight, the WEC has proven itself to be a powerful and growing presence in sports, both with our live events and our programming on VERSUS. Exciting matchups like Torres vs. Tapia on Dec. 3 and the incredible fights we have planned for 2009 under this new structure will no doubt establish WEC as the home of the best lighter weight fighters in the world.”
