If Urijah Faber and Leonard Garcia are victorious in their respective fights at World Extreme Cagefighting’s upcoming September 10 event in Hollywood, Florida, the two could potentially meet in a featherweight title showdown in Mexico.
Garcia revealed on today’s edition of TAGG Radio that the WEC has already scheduled a press conference featuring himself and Faber for the third week of September in Mexico City, where the WEC may be planning to hold a show in the near future.
“They’re flying me out six days after the (Pulver) fight to Mexico City to do a press conference and to make a huge announcement,” Garcia said on the radio show. “As I understand it, both Urijah and I are going…I think both of us just need to hold up our ends of the bargain on Sept. 10.”
In order for the two to headline the organization’s first show outside of the United States, they must first pass their respective tests on Sept. 10. Faber is scheduled to make another defense of his WEC featherweight title against American Top Team product Mike Thomas Brown while Garcia will have his hands full against former UFC lightweight champion Jens Pulver.
