Dominick Cruz wins again in the WEC. With five wins in the blue cage, the American rematched Joseph Benavidez this Wednesday at WEC 50. The bantamweight-title bout was a lively affair that took all five rounds. In the end, Cruz held on to his title with a split decision, beating the hard-nosed Benavidez for a second time.
Three-time world Jiu-Jitsu champion Fredson Paixão, too, saw action in the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas, and got his second win in the promotion. The fighter used his finely tuned Jiu-Jitsu and kicks to take a split decision over Bryan Caraway.
