Faber, Garcia May Headline Mexico WEC Event

Leonard GarciaWEC featherweight champion Urijah Faber and 145-pound contender Leonard Garcia may square off for the title in a future headlining bout in Mexico according to MMA Junkie.

“They’re flying me out six days after the (Pulver) fight to Mexico City to do a press conference and to make a huge announcement,” said Garcia. “As I understand it, both Urijah and I are going. … I think both of us just need to hold up our ends of the bargain on Sept. 10. So yeah, you essentially hit the nail on the head.”

The bout hinges on Faber emerging victorious from his WEC36 main event bout against Mike Brown and Garcia topping former UFC lightweight champion Jens Pulver at the September 10th event.
