Yesterday during a conference call with the WEC Featherweight Champion Urijah Faber, "The California Kid" shed a little light on the WEC's plans to move to the PPV market:

"Versus and the WEC together are doing a great job of getting the promotion out there, and I don't see any crossing over with the UFC and the WEC," Faber said. "I do, however, see pay per view being in the future for sure. (UFC executives) Dana (White) and Lorezo (Fertitta) said something to me about that. Peter Dropick, who's the VP (of the WEC), said something to me about that. Of course I'd be on the [fight card]."


"It's definitely going to happen in 2009," Faber said. "I don't know against who or what the scenario is going to be. It's only been two years since it's been under the Zuffa umbrella, and look how far it's come. I think there's a lot more exciting things to happen in the next few years -- this being one of them."

This would be interesting. I'm a fan of the WEC, but you have to wonder if their fighters have enough draw for a PPV event especially since Zuffa has separated the weight divisions between WEC and UFC.
