Carlos Condit signs WEC contract extension
World Extreme Cagefighting welterweight title-holder Carlos Condit (22-4), one of the few world top-10 170-pounders not fighting in the UFC, has signed a contract extension with the WEC. The news comes from USATODAY.com. Terms of the contract were not disclosed, though Condit confirmed that he had just one fight remaining on his previous deal. Condit (22-4), who joined the WEC after fighting for organizations such as Rumble on the Rock and Pancrase, defeated John Alessio for the title at WEC 26 in March 2007. He's since made two successful title defenses -- against Brock Larson at WEC 29 and Carlo Prater at WEC 32. He's now won seven straight fights, and none of his 22 victories have gone to decision. Condit, who's been vocal about wanting to unify the WEC and UFC titles, has not been scheduled for his next fight.

Sources close to “Razor” Rob McCullough’s camp have confirmed to MMAWeekly.com that the former lightweight World Extreme Cagefighting champion returns to action on June 1 against Kenneth Alexander at the Arco Arena in Sacramento, Calif. Part of the WEC’s most ambitious live effort yet, McCullough will attempt to avenge an early career loss to Alexander in 2002.

WEC fighters could be headed to UFC
Fighters from the Ultimate Fighting Championship's partner organization, World Extreme Cagefighting, could be headed to the UFC as the organization tries to further distinguish the two fight promotions. According to an interview with Dana White that appeared on Yahoo! Canada, some of the WEC's middleweights and light heavyweights could be folded into the UFC. "We're going to make the WEC the smaller weights and the UFC will be the heavier weights," White said. "We'll probably take some of the guys in the higher weights, the champions over there and bring them into UFC. We're still trying to figure that out." ohhhh man! This could make for some VERY good fights. Condit...Filho...Stann

Anyone Can Fight Jens Pulver Saturday
And you won't get hurt, not physically anyway. Pulver, the #1 contender to the WEC Featherweight Title, who is also an avid gamer, will be on Xbox Live Saturday night from 9-11 PM ET playing the game "Call Of Duty 4" with Xbox Live members. I wonder if Urijah Faber will also be on there...

Miguel Torres vs. Yoshiro Maeda WEC title fight slated for June 1st
Manny Tapia was forced to withdraw this evening from a highly anticipated bout against WEC Bantamweight Champion Miguel Torres (32-1) because of a knee injury sustained while training for their showdown at the Arco Arena in Sacramento, Calif., on June 1. MMAmania.com has learned that Yoshiro Maeda (23-4-2) has agreed to replace Tapia on short notice and take on Torres at WEC 34: “Faber vs. Pulver” for the 135-pound strap. Maeda made his WEC debut in Albuquerque, N.M., knocking out Charlie Valencia with a body kick in the first round. The Japanese fighter is a decorated Pancrase and DEEP veteran. In fact, Maeda was the first Pancrase featherweight titleholder. He had some trouble competing under the Pride FC banner (two of his four losses); however, Maeda has not lost since being submitted by Joe Pearson back in 2006. It was announced today actually that Maeda would face Damacio Page. That bout appears to have quickly been scratched, however, to ensure a worthy opponent for Torres.
