Dana White’s WEC 48 Video Blog: Day One, WEC Lightweights Eventually In The UFC

Not a single mention of the WEC…and it doesn’t sound like that will change if they continue to hold WEC pay-per-views.

Q: How come the regular UFC faces, if you will, are taking more of an active role this time for WEC?

White: The way I look at it is, it’s a Zuffa promotion, and this is the team for pay-per-view. Obviously when the WEC is on Versus, they have their team and everything else, but this is the pay-per-view team.

So any time Zuffa does a pay-per-view, it would be you guys out there for it?

Absolutely.

Dana also mentioned that they will eventually fold the WEC lightweights into the UFC as they beef up their featherweight and bantamweight divisions and add a flyweight division.
