    Who is your favorite WEC fighter (after the UFC Buyout in 2011)

    tough choice as the UFC inherited so much talent from the WEC

    Aldo

    Pettis

    Faber

    Cruz

    Cowboy

    Henderson

    Mendes

    Korean Zombie

    Mighty Mouse

    Lamas

    or someone else?

    (I would ask mods to create a poll but it never happens)

    My pick is Cowboy

    I think most people will say Stann perhaps but I liked Miguel Torres despite his strange van comment.

    Faber is always fun but his recent eye poke & twist put me off him.

    I wish they imported the cage dimensions.

    I highly doubt most people would say Stann

    and I don't mean people like Stann or Sonnen

    as they were in the UFC way before the WEC closed and before the Buy out

    I like them all. Goes to show WEC had some serious talent.

    I agree it's tough to pick just 1 guy, as so many awesome fighters

    pretty torn between Cowboy and Bendo

    Seriously. While I miss the WEC and their events (they always delivered), they have added a great deal to the UFC.

    I love the fact that Condit, Henderson and Pettis have all tasted UFC gold after being perceived by some (including many UFC fighters) as somewhat inferior talent.

    Condit, Cruz, and MM

    Chael was great but only for pure entertainment

    Aldo, Swanson, and Assuncao are my Top-3 in that order. I also like Pettis, Condit, DJ, and Wineland as well.
