Las Vegas, NV (USA) – World Extreme Cagefighting® hits Arizona for the first time on Thursday, Dec. 16 with two explosive world title f ights at Jobing.com Arena in Glendale. This historic night features
Glendale’s Ben Henderson defending the lightweight crown against 23-year-old superstar Anthony “Showtime” Pettis, while Tucson-born Dominick Cruz defends the bantamweight title against Scott “Young Guns” Jorgensen.
With two of the most anticipated title fights of the year headlining the card, WEC’s debut in Arizona closes 2010 with a bang.
“Arizona deserved a card like this after winning the Amp Energy Home town Takedown contest,” WEC General Manager Reed Harris said. “Fans in the Phoenix market voted for over two months and beat out 30 other cities to bring WEC to their area. Now, we are bringing fans two awesome title fights to Jobing.com Arena. Glendale’s Ben Hender son will face the stiffest test of his career in Anthony Pettis. Plus, Cruz-Jorgensen has the chance to be one of the greatest bantamweight title fights of all time. We cannot wait for this event in Glendale.”
