After teammate Jose Aldo conquered the WEC featherweight title, Wagnney Fabiano decided to drop to bantamweight (135lbs, 61kg), as he aspires to the organization’s title and would never consider facing Aldo.
And the Nova Uniao black belt already has a likely date and opponent for his debut in his new weight division. The bout should take place January 10, against Frank Gomez.
Wagnney goes into the fight after his second career loss, while Gomez won his last two outings. The post of division champion is currently held by Brian Bowles, who ended the reign of Carlson Gracie student Miguel Torres in his last fight.
