Mark HominickA featherweight bout between former Affliction fighters Mark Hominick vs. Deividas Taurosevicius is in the works for WEC 43 on September 2nd in Youngstown, Ohio and a lightweight bout pitting EliteXC veteran Muhsin Corbbrey against Anthony Njokuani is also in the works for the Versus-televised event, according to Sherdog.

Taurosevicius (10-3) is an IFL veteran who had won six-straight bouts before suffering a decision loss to Ryan Schultz in his most-recent fight in May 2008.

Corbbrey (8-3) had won three-straight fights since suffering a loss to Jim Miller in August 2006, but was defeated by Nick Diaz in EliteXC last May in latest matchup. Njokuani (10-2) lost to lightweight contender Ben Henderson in his WEC debut in January, but bounced back with a second-round TKO of Bart Palaszewski in April.
