The WEC are back in action on March 6th and the full fight card for WEC 47 has now been officially announced.
Headlining the card is the Bantamweight title fight between the undefeated Brian Bowles (8-0) and Dominick Cruz (14-1).
Bowles gained the title after a shock KO win over Miguel Torres, and now looks to make his first successful title defense against Cruz who has put together a four fight unbeaten run in the WEC since dropping down to 135lbs.
Meanwhile in the co-main event Miguel Angel Torres will look to get back to winning ways for only the second time in his 39 fight career when he takes on Joseph Benavidez who has himself only lost once in his 12 fight career.
Jens Pulver also makes his return at WEC 47 but with four of his five fights for the promotion ending in defeat the former UFC star knows that a loss to Javier Vasquez, who is 0-2 in the WEC, would spell the end of his 11 year career.
