WEC 50 | Dominator vs Joe B-Wan KenobiCategory: MMA
In the main event of WEC 50: Cruz vs Benavidez 2, the best bantamweight fighter in the world returns to make the first defense of his WEC Bantamweight title.
Set to challenge Dominick Cruz is a man out for revenge, Joseph Benavidez.
At WEC 42, Cruz handed Benavidez his first career loss in a matchup that was named as “Fight of the Night”.
On August 18, 2010 in The Pearl at The Palms in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA, the two will finally meet in a rematch.
Dominick “Dominator” Cruz (15 wins-1 loss, 6 KOs/1 submission) became the WEC Bantamweight champion after defeating Brian Bowles via TKO at WEC 47: Bowles vs. Cruz.
Joseph “Joe B-Wan Kenobi” Benavidez (12 wins-1 loss, 3 KOs/7 submissions) is currently ranked as the #3 bantamweight in the world by Sherdog.com. His last fight was at WEC 47 where he submitted Miguel Torres in the 2nd Round.
I predict a Unanimous Decision win for Dominick Cruz here.
