Jarrod Card: “The Wild Card” on fighting and fatherhood, a PRO MMA exclusive

Jarrod “The Wild Card” (10-3-1) has accomplished much in his rising MMA career. He has beaten multiple WEC veterans, and was only the second fighter to beat the very tough, durable, and experienced Jeff Bedard.

The only other loss on Bedard’s MMA resume is to current WEC Bantamweight Champion Miguel “Angel” Torres.

Card built on his growing reputation with a five round war against former Marine Sniper Bruce Conners with the XFC featherweight title on the line at “XFC 8: Regional Conflict” back in April of this year.

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.

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.
