  1. this is because urijah makes the wec money, you do not, people dont come to see you fight you are not a crowd pleaser. the wec light weights are not the calaber fighters of the lightweights in ufc. the light weights wec devision should be eliminated and have to go fight for ufc. wec is for lower weight classes and exciting fighters like faber, bowls,nenavidez,torres ext….. what would wec be with out faber?…
