Tatame.com published a story citing sources "close to the WEC", that claimed that a WEC-UFC merger was imminent. After reading this, WEC President, Reed Harris does a Dana White and starts rage-typing on The UG, going on about how that "Sh*t website" always fabricates their stories:
I normally don't even bother commenting on stories like this...but this site has done this before and I cant let it go time after time. Whats great about this story...is that this so called MMA website quoted "a source close to the WEC".
This is the same web site the said Fabiano was coming to the fighter summit two weeks ago to learn how the merger would work. I spoke to Fabiano at the summit and he had no idea where that came from and was pissed they used him to try to push some agenda.
I can tell you..this is a lie. No one at WEC would:
A). Make a comment about any business decision to Tatame...period. In fact, I have never had a conversation with them about anything.
B). Would make an announcement that we will merge in January when we have a show scheduled in Ohio in March.
c). Announce or even discuss anything WEC with a sh*t web site like them :) (wouldn't there be better places to announce such big news).
Don't play their game...what they do is make up stories, feed them to the other sites and try to drive traffic to their web site to sell advertising. Yet time and time again their stories end up being false.
Dont be a victim.
