Versus really wants you to pay attention to arguably one of the most slept on fights in WEC history: Rob McCullough vs. Donald Cerrone at WEC 36. The promoter for UWC was on location when the fight happened and was texting me the entire time asking if this fight was being aired on television. By all accounts the fight was tremendous and main event worthy if the action within the cage is the qualifying feature. Details on when the fight will be aired on Versus:
These clips are available to insiders only for a short time; Versus will air the fight in its entirety as part of WEC® Best of 2008, a two-hour special presentation on December 28 at 9 p.m. ET.
And while there's been some shake-ups at the WEC from a management perspective, it's difficult to blame old staff for not featuring this fight. There's no way to predict which fight will be barn burners and the two hour broadcast of the WEC shows leaves very little time after main events. At least now this fantastic scrap is being brought to light.
Parts 2 and 3 after the jump.
