World Extreme Cagefighting coming to Phoenix, Arizona on December 16th

The WEC is set to arrive in Phoenix, Arizona on December 16th, 2010 after fans voted in the Amp Energy WEC contest, with the city winning to host the event in the state.

Other finalists included Milwaukee and Nashville, but the Jobing.com Arena in Glendale, a suburb of Phoenix, pulled through in the end.

WEC lightweight champion, Benson Henderson, a native of the state said:

“It’s going to be awesome. We’ve got some great fans out there. They’ve been MMA hardcore fans for the past 10-15 years, a long time, a lot of good fighters out there. So I’m really looking forward to it.”
