Before the merge with UFC happen, WEC ends the year right with WEC 53. Let's get ready to rumble as Henderson vs Pettis and Cruz vs Jorgensen burn down the house.

The “: Henderson vs. Pettis” fighter weigh-ins took place today, and all the competitors successfully made weight.

Today’s event took place at Jobing.com Arena in Glendale, Ariz., the same site that will host Thursday’s Versus-broadcast event.

All four co-headliners and title fighters weighed without any further issues.

53 features lightweight champ Ben Henderson (155 pounds) vs. (154.5) and bantamweight champ (134.5) vs. Scott Jorgensen (135) in the co-headliners. Henderson, however, voluntarily and immediately stripped and weighed in while standing behind a towel, which means he narrowly made the 155-pound limit for his title fight.

This Thrusday’s show serves as the WEC’s swan song; the fan-friendly organization mergers with its sister promotion, the , next year. The Henderson vs. Pettis winner gets an immediate title shot, and the Cruz vs. Jorgensen winner will be crowned the first-ever bantamweight champ.
