Carlos Condit and Jamie Varner retained their respective World Extreme Cagefighting titles Sunday night at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas while former U.S. Marine Brian Stann was defeated in a light heavyweight championship rematch against hometown favorite Steve Cantwell.

Coming into the show’s main event, Condit was expected to encounter his toughest test to date against Hiromitsu Miura, who has become known as a formidable opponent in past fights courtesy of his slick judo throws and heavy hands. Miura provided quite the test for Condit, who was put into dangerous predicaments throughout the course of the fight.

After preventing Miura’s inital judo throw attempt in the first round, Condit found himself being slammed onto the canvas just moments later, only to return the favor to Miura later on in a sign of things to come. Flurries of punches and submission exchanges between the two were prominent throughout the first fifteen minutes of the bout, which saw Condit ahead on the judge’s scorecards going into the championship rounds.

Report: McCullough-Cerrone Possible for Fall

Former WEC lightweight champion “Razor” Rob McCullough will likely continue his journey to regain his title later this year, possibly taking on undefeated prospect Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone in a bout with potential title shot implications.

The news comes from MMA Mania, which reports that the fight is currently “in the works” and could either take place at planned WEC events in August or September.

McCullough bounced back from a brutal TKO loss that cost him his welterweight title at the hands of current champion Jamie Varner in February by avenging a prior loss to Kenneth Alexander via split decision earlier this month in Sacramento. The bout will likely mark the fifth consecutive time that McCullough has been in a Zuffa-televised bout.

Cerrone, who has yet to lose thus far in his professional career, was also victorious at the WEC’s latest effort earlier this month, submitting Danny Castillo with an armbar during a preliminary bout. The fight was his first since being suspended by the Nevada State Athletic Commission after testing positive for a banned diuretic last year.

Officially announced by the WEC today was a bantamweight showdown between rising contender Brian Bowles and Jackson’s Submission Fighting product Damacio Page. That fight will take place at the promotion’s next event on August 3rd in Las Vegas.

Page-Maeda Set for WEC in June

Featherweight prospect Damacio Page will challenge highly ranked Pancrase veteran Yoshiro Maeda at World Extreme Cagefighting’s next event in June.

The promotion announced the bout through their official website earlier today.

Both Page and Maeda were victorious in separate bouts at WEC 32 in February. The victory was Page’s second in as many fights, helping him bounce back from a rough 2006 that saw him lose three out of five bouts at one point

Maeda will become Page’s most high-profile opponent to date. The current heavyweight King of Pancrease knocked out Charlie Valencia with a body kick in February and has not lost since being submitted by former WEC title contender Joe Pearson at a PRIDE event in November 2006.

WEC 34 will also feature a highly-anticipated featherweight title clash between current champion Urijah Faber and former UFC lightweight champion Jens Pulver.
