During the entire card the announce team/production crew never once mentioned WEC, the only time the logo was shown was on the belts.

A few examples:

All of the event signage said "Aldo vs. Faber" including the microphones Joe and Goldie used.

One of the guys was making his debut, and Goldie said something like,

"He's making his debut with this organization."

Before Henderson/Cerrone, he said "Henderson has never lost in this cage."

It's like Zuffa just decided to kill the WEC but can't contractually call it UFC yet.

This was do to the contracts Zuffa has with both spike and vs. Danz commented on it and said he is happy they got it worked out.

****! Was I the only one who didn't watch this? I didn't think it was worth the money, I guess I was wrong.

I didn't buy it either. I was at a comedy show getting drunk.
