The UFC may not be scheduled to go to Columbus next year for The Arnold Sports Festival, but that doesn’t mean there won’t be a mixed martial arts event for fitness buffs to attend.
According to MMA Junkie, Zuffa is planning to hold WEC 47 on March 6 to coincide with the festival. A bantamweight title fight between the champ Brian Bowles and Dominick Cruz is expected to headline.
MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) has learned from sources close to the organization that Bowles and Cruz have verbally agreed to meet at the as-yet-unannounced “WEC 47: Bowles vs. Cruz” event on March 6 in Columbus, Ohio.
Bout agreements are expected to be finalized shortly.
An official announcement is expected soon.
