    So many of the WEC greats are in the twilight of their careers. Would be a nice homage to the organization and those that carried it to have a card with possibly Dom and Stann on the mic, sharing stories and letting Aldo, Faber, Cerrone, Condit, Showtime, etc. have one last swan song.

    Into it. I'd add middleweight champion Chael on commentary, we need Cruz vs Aldo.

    What happened to Stann anyways? He was commenting there for a little while, wasn’t he?

    I dont want to see Pettis lose to Marcus Hicks, but I'd be down. It was such a good organization for many years.

    Cerrone Vs Pettis II
    Faber Vs Assuncao II
    Swanson Vs Lamas II

    I thought of Condit, but I couldn't think of an opponent for him. Krause had a couple of fights in the WEC so maybe him.

    He saw no future with the UFC penny pinching with his salary and making him travel every weekend away from his family. This is just my guess and I have no basis on this claim but I honestly wouldn’t doubt it.

    UFC is cheap

    Terrible idea. It's damaging from a brand perspective and would confuse the shit out of casuals, most of whom have started watching in the last 10 years.

    Damaging in what way. This isn't 2009. They're not going to name it UFC 250: WEC Rises or some chit. Just quietly load the card with WEC fighters. Casuals wouldn't know the difference.

    WEC One Night Stand, where we get to see Todd Harris and Martinez cut a promo on Dana while the crowd chant "Fuck you Dana! clap clap"

    I’d love it but the UFC never do cool things like that.

    What's the point of doing it if you're not going to promote it? Also, it would literally be a card full of nothing but lower weight fighters, fights that we can barely stand on this forum.

    It's literally in the OP that it would be to pay homage to the current active WEC fighters on the roster. Most of them will likely be retired by years end.

    Also, Pettis, Cerrone, and Condit have all recently fought at welterweight so not sure if you're classifying that as lower weight but I honestly haven't heard anybody complain about bantamweight or above on this forum. Just the Flys which their wouldn't be any on the card.
