WEC 53: Henderson vs. Pettis airs live on Versus tonight from Glendale, Arizona. This is going to be the last event in the more than 9 years of promotion's history.
Revgear wishes luck to two Team Revgear fighters - Jamie Varner and Ricardo Lamas. Jamie Varner is fighting Shane Roller. "There's definitely some serious holes in his striking game," Varner said of Roller. "I feel that I'm a much more seasoned, technical striker than he is, especially as far as boxing goes".
Ricardo Lamas is facing a WEC newcomer Yuri Alcantara tonight. Ricardo had 3 consecutive WEC wins, and definitely feels good about this fight (though is having bitter-sweet feelings about this being the last WEC event...)
Tonight we also wish luck to Bart Palaszewski (35-13) who goes for five-straight wins against Kamal Shalorus (Shalorus fights for the first time since a baffling split draw with Jamie Varner at WEC 49).
Good luck, guys!
