Las Vegas, NV (USA) – World Extreme Cagefighting® featherweight champion Mike Brown has built a reputation as a hard-hitting, gritty fighter capable of breaking down his opponents. Similarly, top-ranked contender Jose Aldo has established a name for himself by steamrolling the opposition with explosive punches and devastating knees. On Wednesday, Nov. 18 from The Pearl at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas, NV, one of these men will leave the cage as the undisputed featherweight champion of the world.
World Extreme Cagefighting® officially announced today that the long-awaited title clash between champion Mike Brown and fierce challenger Aldo will take place in the fight capital of the world, Las Vegas, NV. What’s more, Brown vs. Aldo kicks off one of the biggest fight weeks ever in Las Vegas, as Brock Lesnar will defend the UFC® heavyweight championship against Shane Carwin at the Mandalay Bay Events Center on the Saturday following WEC’s historic event.
“This fight is for more than just the featherweight title,” WEC GM Reed Harris said. “For Mike Brown, a win establishes him as the best featherweight fighter in the history of the sport. For Aldo, who is just 22 years old, this fight could mean the start of an Anderson Silva-like dominant reign.”
