WEC Never Die: Fantasy Booking One Last Event Two Years Later
Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports
Oh, hello Brittney Palmer.

Two years ago I found myself in Glendale, Arizona, on the floor at the Jobing.com Arena for WEC 53.

I had just left a job at Apple and decided on a whim to fly out for the final WEC event ever. It was so last minute that I flew in the day of the fights and left immediately afterwards. I may have spent a total of 18 hours total in Glendale. At the time, I was unsure what I'd do next with my life after years working in a corporate atmosphere.

Sitting cage-side, I had goosebumps throughout most of the night. I got to see some of the most exciting fights first hand, including the epic "Pettis Kick". 

It was a trip that ultimately led me to MMA journalism and one that I'll never forget. Now, two years later, I'd like to revisit the WEC and book one final card.
