Dana White Talks About Plans For WEC, The Zuffa PPV Team

UFC President Dana White breaks down the Zuffa PPV Team, which includes Joe Rogan, Mike Goldberg, and Bruce Buffer, WEC 48 and his expections for the show and WEC plans for the future:

“The way I look at it is, it's a Zuffa promotion, and this is the team for pay-per-view. Obviously when the WEC is on Versus, they have their team and everything else, but this is the pay-per-view team. There's great fights in the WEC. Anybody that's ever watched these guys fight on Versus knows how these guys always perform. If we did three WEC pay-per-views a year, I think people are going to be interested in buying them. The Urijah Faber card versus Aldo had sold 10,000. This thing's going to be a sellout over there in Arco (Arena). I think eventually what we do is, we're going to continue to add to lighter weights, and you'll end up seeing these (WEC) guys go into the UFC, the 155 pounders.”
