Where do I watch WEC 47 in live streaming online free?
You can watch it LIVE for free on the Versus Network on Sunday, March 6, 2010 at 9:00 PM ET / 8:00 PM CT.
If you can’t watch it on TV, it will be streamed live on WEC.TV for viewers outside of the Versus! viewing area (outside the USA). Several sites will also 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 47 LIVE stream.
If I can find a working stream, I’ll post it here.
UPDATE: WEC 47 has wrapped up!
