WEC 51: Aldo Vs. Gamburyan Live Blogging, Results, and Analysis

Bleacher Report is once again live, cageside as the World Extreme Cagefighting sends some of its biggest and brightest stars into the modified octagon.

All of the focus has been on the featherweight championship tilt between the defending champ Jose Aldo and the challenger Manvel Gamburyan and for good reason.

Junior is quickly establishing himself as one of the more dominant rulers of his division; a ferocious striker and dangerously well-rounded athlete in the vein of the Ultimate Fighting Championship's Middleweight Champion Anderson Silva and Welterweight Champion Georges St-Pierre.

Meanwhile, the Anvil is a familiar face to even some casual fans because of his time on The Ultimate Fighter reality show and a brief run in the organization's lightweight division. It's always intriguing when a legitimate competitor drops down to a more natural weight class so the anticipation is high to see what the dynamo can do against the king of the 145-pound castle.

But those two warriors aren't the only guys who'll be throwing leather inside the 1stBank Center near Denver.

In addition, we've got Denver-native Donald Cerrone, former WEC lightweight champ Jamie Varner, former WEC bantamweight champ Miguel Angel Torres, a notorious burner in Leonard Garcia, the Korean Zombie (Chang Sung Jung), and another TUF alumnus in George Roop.

In other words, the action should be thick when the curtain drops in about 15 minutes.

Sincere apologies, but the Internet isn't working at all cageside so I've had to move backstage to find connectivity.
