Next WEC card star packed!

Porterville, CA-Wow. WEC never stop improving their cards as they work to become the show for UFC fans to watch between UFCs. Now WEC returns to The Palace in Lemoore for WEC 10 “Bragging Rights” on May 21st with what seems to be a renewed emphasis on matchmaking.

The last WEC show in January was a mixture of up-and-comers from some of the most scouted schools in California with some UFC stars and vets and local heroes. Biggest news as most fans remember was Chris Leben of Team Quest knocked out Mike Swick of American Kickboxing Academy to win the Middleweight title. Team Quest is the home of Randy Couture, Dan Henderson, Matt Lindland, and Nathan Quarry among others while AKA are the home to recent UFC vet Mike Kyle and KOTC Champion Paul Buentello. The rest of the “star fights” were a little one-sided but the result was Heavyweight Champion Mike Kyle, Yves Edwards, and Tiki went on to fight in the most recent UFC. This time around it looks like the matchmaking has improved dramatically. According to WEC’s website the fight card so far is:

Card Subject To Change:
Rafael Del Real vs. Mike Serr
J. T. Taylor vs. Chris Lytle
Benji Radach vs. Mark Weir (unconfirmed)
Poppies Martinez vs. TBA
Gil Castillo vs. Ryan Schultz (unconfirmed)

WEC World Middleweight Title
Olaf Alfonso vs. Jason Maxwell (unconfirmed)

WEC World Welteweight Championship Title
Shonie Carter vs. Karo Parisyan

WEC World Middleweight Championship Title
Chris Leben vs. Steve Heath (unconfirmed)

WEC North American Heavyweight Championship Title
Doug “Rhino” Marshall vs. Anthony Arria


Where to begin? How about Welterweight Champion Shonie Carter defends his title against UFC vet Karo Parisyan. Parisyan first turned heads on the National level by putting on one of the best fights in KOTC in years as he beat Fernando Vasconcelos by decision. His UFC 44 debut against Dave Strasser caused an immediate pro-judo bandwagon rush on the internet which barely subsided when he lost a decision to TKO Welterweight Champion George St. Pierre in UFC 46. Carter himself has shown more judo-based takedowns in recent years making his fights very exciting even if they do usually go the distance to a judges’ decision.

Add to this Leben defending his belt against Cesar Gracie’s Steve Heath assuming it does get confirmed. Team Cesar Gracie fields UFC vets Nick Diaz and Gil Castillo, Pancrase vets and grappling sensations Steve Heath and David Terrell, Shooto vet Jake Shields, and many more.

But wait…there’s more. As of right now one of the favorite local fighters and participant in the fight of the night last time Olaf takes on Team Extreme’s Jason Maxwell. For the team perspective Cesar Gracie’s Castillo takes on Team Quest’s Ryan Schultz. The UFC vets this time don’t get up-and-comers, they get other UFC vets as besides Carter/Parisyan we’ll see Benji Radach take on Mark Weir. UFC vet and AFC Champion Chris Lytle takes on J.T. Taylor who picked up a draw to Dennis Hallman only one month after a loss to Shonie Carter. Assuming all these fights do get confirmed this looks to be the card to watch in May.
