This Sunday WEC 49 went down in Canada. It was the promotion’s maiden incursion into Canada. Despite the main event ending in a draw, the show featured a number of riveting bouts.
In the main event, former champion Jamie Varner launched an all-out onslaught on Kamal Shalorus. However, to the fighter’s surprise, after three rounds the scorecards revealed a draw.
Two Nova União athletes also featured on the card. The first to step into the cage was Renan Barão, making his debut for the organization. The JIu-Jitsu brown belt submitted Anthony Leone with an armbar in the third round. A few fights later, it was Wagnney Fabiano’s turn, and he took a unanimous decision over Frankie Gomes.
The best fight of the night was Mark Hominick and Yves Jabouin’s. The best submission award went to the guillotine Josh Grispi used to overcome LC Davis. Best knockout went to Eddie Wineland, for his win over Will Campuzano. Each bonus was worth 10 thousand dollars.
