Rob McCullough preparing for Marcus Hicks at WEC 39

Originally posted on MMAjunkie.com

A lightweight bout between former WEC champion Rob McCullough (16-5 MMA, 7-3 WEC) and former No. 1 contender Marcus Hicks (8-1 MMA, 3-1 WEC) appears likely for an as-yet-unannounced March date for the WEC.

McCullough shared the likelihood of the bout in a media conference call promoting the VERSUS broadcast of "WEC Best of 2008," set to debut on Dec. 28.

While not yet officially announced by the organization, the WEC is expected to hold an event in Florida in March, headlined by a featherweight title bout between champion Mike Brown and challenger Leonard Garcia.

"It looks like my next victim is going to be Marcus Hicks in March," McCullough said. "I don't know where the venue is at, yet. But that's what they told me. I'm training for that one."

McCullough will be looking to bounce back from a unanimous-decision loss to undefeated lightweight Donald Cerrone in November. That bout, despite having yet to air on TV, was selected by the WEC as one of the four best fights for the WEC in 2008 and will be featured in the two-hour "WEC Best of 2008" special.
