World Extreme Cagefighting will soon fold its light heavyweight and middleweight divisions into the UFC and will now feature just bantamweight, featherweight, lightweight, and welterweight classes.

The news was reported on Thursday by Yahoo! Sports.

Additionally, the WEC is considering pay-per-view events for 2009, possibly as early as May, and is also planning to hold more events next year than in 2008.

World Extreme Cagefighting’s next event, WEC 36 “Faber vs. Brown”, takes place on September 10th in Hollywood, Florida and is headlined by WEC featerweight champion Urijah Faber vs. Mike Brown.

Who are the WEC light heavy and middleweight champs? It would be exciting to see cung le and frank shamrock in ufc

Cung Le is a guy that the UFC wants, Frank has been with the UFC pre-Zuffa days as a fighter and then as a commentator when Zuffa bought it. However he had a falling out and said that he wouldn't return unless Zuffa were gone from it.

AS far as WEC, they have no marquee LHW to shout about and as for MW there is only really 2 guys, Sonnen and Filho.
