Main Events Set for WEC 45 on Dec. 19

A pair of bouts between lightweight contenders have been announced as co-headliners for the final WEC event of the year, WEC 45 on Dec. 19 at the Pearl in Las Vegas.

Donald Cerrone, coming off an interim title loss to Ben Henderson earlier this month, will take on Ed Ratcliff, while former IFL standout Chris Horodecki will make his WEC debut against Anthony Njokuani.

Bantamweight Takeya Mizugaki will fight on the card against Scott Jorgensen. The WEC had arranged for the Cage Force veteran to fight Damacio Page, but the Greg Jackson team member has withdrawn due to injury.

In other bantamweight action, Joseph Benavidez, out of Urijah Faber's camp, will take on grappling expert Rani Yahya. Benavidez will look to bounce back from the first loss of his career, an unanimous decision to Dominick Cruz in August.

Fight Card:

Donald Cerrone vs. Ed Ratcliff
Chris Horodecki vs. Anthony Njokuani
Takeya Mizugaki vs. Scott Jorgensen
Rani Yahya vs. Joseph Benavidez
Bart Palaszewski vs. Anthony Pettis
