WEC Headed To Phoenix In December

UFC President Dana White announced Wednesday on WEC on Versus that Phoenix had won the WEC Hometown Takedown fan vote competition, awarding a WEC event to Glendale's Jobing.com Arena on Dec. 16th, 2010.  Phoenix beat out Milwaukee and Nashville in the final vote.

No cards have been announced yet nor any ticket details.  This comes curiously close to the heels of a Strikeforce event on Aug. 13th and the adoption of New Jersey-style rules by the Arizona State Boxing and MMA Commission on July 29th.
