After making a successful bantamweight debut against Clint Godfrey in the WEC, Wagnney Fabiano already has an opponent and date for his next outing in the cage. On June 20 in Canada, the Nova Uniao black belt faces Frank Gomez at WEC 49.
Wagnney had an impressive tenure in the IFL, where he was champion, with five submission wins and one knockout. In the WEC, after suffering his first loss in the promotion, he departed from the featherweight division, as his teammate Jose Aldo was, at the time, about to have a shot at the title.
Now the fighter is one of those in pursuit of the bantamweight belt, now held by Dominick Cruz. To get his shot at the belt, beating Gomez, who has just one loss in nine fights, is fundamental.
