World Extreme Cagefighting started back in 2001 and was started by Scott Adams and Reed Harris.
For years, they were one of the few organizations around the world that featured the lighter weight classes.
Towards the end of 2006, the history of the WEC would change forever as Zuffa purchased the organization and would finally bring attention to fighters in the smaller weight classes.
In 2008, the UFC would begin merging the WEC's welterweight, middleweight, and light heavyweight divisions into the organization.
Most recently, UFC president Dana White announced that the WEC would merge all the rest of it's weight classes into the UFC and give the fighters in the lighter weights even more publicity and recognition.
These are the top 10 most important moments in WEC history.
