The rematch between World Extreme Cagefighting champion Mike Brown and former champion Urijah Faber will be televised on June 7 on Versus -- and not on pay-per-view, as the WEC had previously suggested.
That's the news, first reported by Sam Caplan at Five Ounces of Pain and later confirmed by Ariel Helwani of Versus.com. My own speculation is that the organization's previous talk of putting WEC 41 on pay-per-view was something of a trial balloon, and that the feedback from fans led the promotion to think pay-per-view would not be successful.
