WEC 39: BROWN vs GARCIA takes place this Sunday, March 1 – preview

WEC Featherweight Champion Mike Brown (20-4) will make his first title defense against number one contender Leonard “Bad Boy” Garcia (12-3) this Sunday, March 1, 2009 at the Bank Atlantic Center in Corpus Christi, Texas. Brown defeated WEC ‘poster boy’ Urijah Faber (22-2) at WEC 36 in November, 2008 to win the title. It was Faber’s first loss in thirteen fights. Prior to that, Brown defeated Jeff Curran (29-10-1) and is on an eight fight win-streak.

This will be the WEC’s first foray into Texas and Leonard Garcia, who hails from Plainview, Texas, will most certainly have a large number of fans supporting him at the event. Garcia is a UFC transplant and has had two straight wins in the WEC, his most recent being a first round TKO over Jens Pulver at WEC 36 back in November 2008. Fans are not going to want to blink when Brown and Garcia match up this Sunday.
