Tonight promises to be a Grand "Grand Finale" for the WEC with two titles on the line and obviously huge implications for these fighters transitions into the UFC. The biggest is the opportunity for Bend Henderson or Anothony Pettis to fight for the UFC lightweight title with a win tonight.

In betting terms, the best odds on favorites are from 5Dimes and the best odds for WEC dogbets are provided by Bodog.  

This fight is for the final WEC lightweight title, but more significantly it's for No. 1 lightweight contender status in the UFC. Pettis has had three great finishes in his last three fights and his powerful striking was well displayed. Henderson's high paced style and choice to stay in strikers range will put him danger against Pettis. In the end I expect Henderson's chin and heart to provide him with the opportunity to pull off another edge of your seat victory through frenetic pacing, ground control and finally a stellar choke.
Pick: Henderson; Bet 1 Unit

Dominick Cruz (-215 @ 5Dimes) vs Scott Jorgensen (+200 @ Bodog)

Although this is a WEC Bantamweight Championship fight the winner will be crowned the UFC Champion. Scott Jorgensen my be my favorite WEC product, his fights are always exciting and he simply knows how to finish fights. Jorgensen will look to work inside of Cruz's reach advantage and likely will suprise Cruz with his power and speed. The end however, will likey come when Scott can take the decision master to the ground for an even more impressive display of  precision striking.
Pick: Jorgensen; Bet 1 Unit

Donald Cerrone (-370 @ 5Dimes) vs.

Cerrone is an exciting fighter, but tends to be a submit or lose proposition. While Horodecki a much more impressive pallette of wins and his striking is light years beyond Donalds. Horodecki should be able to dictate where this fight goes and eventually land his powerful straight right. Donald will try to find an opening for a submission but Chris will prove too experienced. Cerrone as a 4 to 1 favorite is completely ridiculous, take advantage of this one.
Pick: Horodecki; Bet 1 unit
