Rumors this week indicated that the next challenger for the WEC featherweight belt, currently held by the Brazilian José Aldo, would be the Canadian Mark hominick. However, the organization's president, Reed Harris, stated that it has not yet been decided who the Tupiniquim athlete's next opponent will be in the WEC Octagon, but that within a short time there could be a definition on the matter.
“I will wait until the end of November to see which featherweight fights could indicate a future challenger for José Aldo,” said Harris.
When asked about a possible confrontation between Aldo and Hominick, the WEC president stated that this fight is possible, but that it is not the only option in the plans of the organization's directors. Harris also stressed that there is no rush to announce the next challenger for the featherweight belt.
“We still have time. I will analyze how the facts will unfold this coming month to make a decision,” she added.
The only WEC event scheduled for the month of November is number 52, which will take place on the 11th in Las Vegas. The main athletes in the featherweight category who will be in action at WEC 52 will be North Americans Josh Grispi e Chad Mendes, who will face Erik koch e Javier vasquezrespectively.
