WEC 36 on Wednesday

Interestin card coming up on Versus. MMAonTap has the final card and some info on last-minute changes:

Main Card

Urijah Faber vs. Mike Brown (WEC Featherweight Title)
Paulo Filho vs. Chael Sonnen (WEC Middleweight Title)
Jens Pulver vs. Leonard Garcia
Jake Rosholt vs. Nissen Osterneck

Preliminary Fights

Rob McCullough vs. Donald Cerrone
Yoshiro Maeda vs. Rani Yayha
Carmello Marrero vs. Steve Steinbeiss
Jose Aldo vs. Jonathan Brookins
Rafael Dias vs. Danny Castillo
David Avellan vs. Aaron Simpson

The top three fights on the card should be a blast. Faber generally entertains, Filho vs Sonnen actually has a little bad blood in it, and Pulver - Garcia should be a war. I don't know much about most of the other fighters, except that WHY ON EARTH IS MCCULLOUGH VS CERRONE NOT ON THE MAIN CARD? Maeda-Yayha could be fun, Rani's a scrappy little fucker. Marrero I remember holding Cheik Kongo on the ground for three rounds. This airs over the weeks TUF, right?

Looking like the usual great WEC card

how come WEC's "let's get young hungry fighters who whale on each other" formula doesn't translate to other orgs?

having a TV deal can't hurt. remember mayhem bailed on them because he was "tired of fighting in front of 200 people"? now he's "retired". maybe he meant he needed new tires.
