WEC plans 'a show a month' into 2010

Considering the promotion's focus is exclusively on the 155-pound-and-under categories, this would appear to be stretching product thin enough to cover a snare drum. But a little logic peeks through: With both Miguel Torres and Urijah Faber ousted as champions, the WEC effectively has twice as many headliners in those divisions as it did before. Title fights take top billing, but both Torres and Faber carry enough weight to carry their own cards.

That takes care of the event posters, but trying to flesh out monthly dates with the WEC's current roster might mean some very flimsy preliminary bouts.
