World Extreme Cagefighting today announced the WEC 47 opponents for Miguel Torres and Jens Pulver: Joseph Benadivez and Javier Vazquez.
Torres had a 17-fight win streak come to an end at the powerful hands of Brian Bowles last August. It was the most shocking moment of 2009 and one of the biggest upsets in the history of mixed martial arts.
Pulver, a former UFC lightweight champion, will see his first action in the cage since a June 2009 loss to Josh Grispi. Pulver inidicated after the loss that he probably wouldn’t find again, but changed his mind in late 2009 and is primed for a comeback opportunity.
The winner of the bout will earn a title shot at the winner of the Brian Bowles/Dominick Cruz bout that headlines the same card.
WEC 47 takes place March 6 at the Nationwide Arena in Columbus, Ohio.
