A planned lightweight encounter between former WEC lightweight champion “Razor” Rob McCullough and former WEC lightweight title challenger Marcus Hicks that had been planned for WEC 38 on January 25 now appears likely take place at a later date.
FiveOuncesOfPain.com was the first to report earlier this month that the reported WEC 38 bout between the two had been postponed due to wear and tear sustained by McCullough during a heated fight against Donald Cerrone at WEC 36 in November.
However, McCullough revealed during a Tuesday conference call to promote the upcoming airing of his bout against Cerrone on VERSUS that the fight vs. Hicks appears to be a go for WEC 39 in March.
McCullough’s unanimous decision loss to Cerrone at WEC 36 reportedly was a “Match of the Year” candidate and the fight will be shown in its entirety for the first time during VERSUS’ Dec. 28 premiere of “WEC Best of 2008.”
According to MMAjunkie.com, the unnanounced March event could take place in Florida and be headlined by WEC featherweight champion Mike Thomas Brown defending his title vs. Leonard Garcia.
