  • That is F’n week. only 926 people purchase tickets..WOW. I thought the WEC was bigger than that. Unreal… I am blown away. 450 left unsold….Amazing. If I were down in that area I would go.

    You’d think family members and friends alone would top 1000 tickets.

    More ring girls in less clothing, see if that works.

    If Zuffa would push the WEC product harder on the UFC cards that would help I think…Just gotta talk positve about it and mention it more than once in passing… shit have Mir do an interview during UFC programming talking to one of the fighters on the next WEC card… they just need to be more creative and open to cross promotion

    sheesh thas kinda Diddly ain’t it?? I’m also Shocked at how little some o these 2nd Tier League Fighters get ie 2,000 or 3,000 or even less. Tough row to hoe fer sure. that said I thought the Cerrone Ratcliffe Fight was Excellent!!

    WEC needs to take the show on the road and come to the EAST COAST!
    I am sure they would sell a lot more tickets in Philly or Atlantic City.
