The title match between featherweight defending champion Jose Aldo and “The Ultimate Fighter” Season 5 finalist Manny Gamburyan headlines WEC 51, which will be broadcast live on Versus network. Gamburyan previously knocked out another fellow-enlisted fighter, Mike Thomas Brown. Meanwhile, Maine native Brown has not experienced defeat in consecutive fights for almost six years now.
