WEC 45 | Cerrone vs Ratcliff Lightweight ShowdownCategory: MMA
The World Extreme Cagefighting organization returns to The Pearl at the Palms in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA for another mixed-martial arts extravaganza.
After the success of WEC 44 last November 18 where Jose Aldo overwhelmed Mike Brown with his speed, here comes WEC 45 featuring Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone and Ed “9mm” Ratcliff in a non-title lightweight match.
Cerrone started out as a Muay Thai kickboxer where he was undefeated with 28 wins and 1 draw before becoming a mixed-martial artist where he has amassed a record of 10 wins (9 by submission) and 2 losses. Ratcliff meanwhile is a stand-up fighter who sports an MMA record of 7 wins (5 by KO, 1 by submission) and only 1 defeat.
The outcome of this matchup will decide who will get the crack for the WEC lightweight championship title.

Where do I watch WEC 45 in live streaming online free?
You can watch it LIVE for free on the Versus Network on Saturday, December 19, 2009 at 9:00 PM ET / 8:00 PM CT.
If you can’t watch it on TV, several sites will actually offer it for free like Justin TV, Freedocast, LiveStream and UStream. You just have to look for them patiently. However, most of them are immediately taken down just minutes after the WEC 45 LIVE stream.
If I can find a working stream, I’ll post it here.
You can also try to watch for it using the Sopcast player.
