Thursday night, the WEC bid the public farewell with a tremendous 53rd event before being officially absorbed into the UFC. As with most every WEC event, the show was action packed from beginning to end, capped off with back-to-back title fights.
In the co-main event, Dominick Cruz defended his bantamweight championship against tough contender Scott Jorgenson, while Anthony Pettis snatched away the WEC lightweight title and No. 1 contender spot in the UFC from Ben Henderson in the main event.
It was a fitting end to a great run from the promotion and a perfect way to kick-start the new divisions in the UFC.
As with every MMA event, there was plenty to take away from the experience.
