International Fight League featherweight champion Wagney Fabiano has signed with World Extreme Cagefighting, according to Tatame.
“My objective is to grown in the event [and] get the title. Letâ€™s start with a tough and focused work. It wonâ€™t chance anything in my life, Iâ€™m always serious and go to any event to win,” said Fabiano to Tatame. “My goal is to fight for the belt and do my best. [WEC featherweight champion Urijah] Faber is the best of the world now. To beat him, I think you have to be in a good shape. Heâ€™s an expert fighter and he has a good gas, itâ€™s complicated to beat a guy like him. You have to set a good game plan and be calm and watch the elbows, because if you hits you can change a whole fight.”
After four-straight submission victories to start his IFL career Fabiano (10-1) defeated LC Davis via first-round submission to capture the promotion’s featherweight title. In his lone title defense before the collapse of the promotion Fabiano defeated Shad Lierley via 37-second knockout to retain his title. His lone career loss was a unanimous decision defeat to current WEC featherweight Jeff Curran.
