This is true. He would have been a real test for Fihlo and could have gotten to see how good Fihlo really is, but its still a great card. Im very excited.

Filho's opponent is still TBA, don't get your hopes up just yet!

Nice card WEC!! I'm wondering if TBA really does mean that it's not Trigg like we all expected? If it's not who would you all like to see go against Filho??

This card looks great...

As for whom to fight Filho... That's just a head scratcher... I don't think he's under contract anymore, but if they could get Mayhem in there that might make for a compelling matchup

thats creepy i was thinking miller would be a good fight as i was reading your message. other than that its hard to figure anyone else thats worth while. most are tied up in either other organizations or a card thats coming up. poor poor filho. no real competition inside of the wec. good thing there owned by zuffa though. this way they can keep paying guys for single fights

Then this means that there is a good chance the McCollough/Karalexis fight might not actually happen. Which sucks. If it does, and they don't make it for a title, it'll be quite the rip off.

If I'm not mistaken, isn't there an HDNet card on the same night? It looks as if Mark Cuban wants to go head to head with the WEC rather than with the UFC.

Now Trigg is fighting Edwin Dewees instead of Filho for HDNet. He took the much easier fight there.

I'd much rather he go in there and lose to Filho and give us a good showing, instead though he's going to potentially pad his record with another win. If I had a shot at a title and I was a fighter, i'd be there in a heartbeat. It's better for the record books to say you lost in a title fight, than to say you won a normal everyday fight, and ducked a title fight.

If Trigg did agree to fight for HDNet over WEC, than I second that. I don't think he will though.
