After a spectacular night of fights at UFC 105 in Manchester Saturday night, Zuffa returns this week with twice as much world-class mixed martial arts action.
Beginning on Wednesday, November 18th, the superstars of World Extreme Cagefighting return at The Pearl at The Palms for WEC: Brown vs Aldo. WEC featherweight champion Mike Brown defends his crown for the third time against Brazilian powerhouse Jose Aldo in one of the most highly-anticipated bouts of 2009. Also in action on the card, which will be televised live on VERSUS beginning at 9pm ET, will be WEC standouts Leonard Garcia, Manny Gamburyan, Rob McCullough, Shane Roller and Danny Castillo in the most important bouts of their careers.
Following WEC: Brown vs Aldo, the action shifts to the Mandalay Bay Events Center on Saturday, November 21st for UFC 106: Ortiz vs Griffin 2. In the main event, which airs on pay-per-view beginning at 10pm ET / 7pm PT, ‘The Huntington Beach Bad Boy’, Tito Ortiz, returns for a rematch with former light heavyweight champion Forrest Griffin. In the co-main event, welterweight power hitters Josh Koscheck and Anthony Johnson collide, and the rest of the main card is just as stellar, as Amir Sadollah, Phil Baroni, Karo Parisyan, Dustin Hazelett, Luiz Cane, and Antonio Rogerio Nogueira all step into the Octagon to cap off Zuffa’s biggest week ever.
42 fighters. 21 bouts. 1 town. 1 week.
