Josh Thomson Feels WEC/UFC Merger Was Nice Way Of Saying WEC Failed

Josh “The Punk” Thomson, who is a a former Strikeforce lightweight champion, talked this week about the WEC/UFC merger and broke down why he feels the WEC was a less than superior product to that of his home, Strikeforce:

“They made it sound so great that a company went under. The simple fact of the matter was that the WEC failed and they put it with the UFC to carry it.”

“To compare WEC lightweights to Strikeforce and the UFC is not fair because if they were that good, they would have been fighting for the UFC. I think the world of (Jamie) Varner, but I beat Hermes (Franca) and Hermes beat Varner. Varner was the WEC champ for awhile. So, where does that leave us?”
