WEC announces Faber-Mizugaki on Nov. 11 at Palms in Las Vegas

Manny Gamburyan adding more depth to WEC’s 145 divison

“The Ultimate Fighter” 5 runner up, Manny Gamburyan will be leaving the UFC, and heading to the talent rich 145 lb. division of the WEC. This isn’t the first time that talk of a move to 145 for Manny has been reported.

Following Gamburyan’s bout with Rob Emerson at UFC 87, the UFC brass suggested that Manny take the step down to featherweight and join the ranks of top contenders in the WEC. Manny stayed put at the time, but following his latest set back in his fight against Thiago Tavares, he finally made the decision to drop from the lightweight division in the UFC to the featherweight division in the WEC.

Gamburyan will go from being a small lightweight, to one of the bigger and stronger 145’ers, joining the ever expanding featherweight division in the WEC. With the emergence of Mike Brown, and with former champ Urijah Faber, Waggney Fabiano, Leonard Garcia, and an exciting young fighter like Jose Aldo; the match ups are nearly endless.

Rd.1 – Martinez looks to get the fight down but Benavidez stuffs it. Benavidez lands a nice left to the face followed by a front kick to the chin. Benavidez throwing nice combinations. Right roundhouse kick to the body by Benavidez. Martinez gets Benavidez down but he bounces back up. Benavidez’s style is very reminiscent of Faber, whom he trains with. Nice judo throw by Benavidez and has Martinez in a headlock from side control as the bell sounds. Great round for Benavidez who was called the “Breakout Star of 2009” recently by Big John McCarthy on Inside MMA.
Rd.2 – Benavidez continues to push the pace and his striking looks good. His stand up looks very similar to the way Faber fights. Nothing very significant lands for either fighter in this round but Benavidez clearly has the edge due to keeping the pressure on and controlling the bout.
