Former WEC Champion McCullough Returns On June 1st

Rob McCulloughFormer World Extreme Cagefighting Lightweight Champion “Razor” Rob McCullough (15-4) will return to the cage on June 1st against Kenneth Alexander (5-2). The WEC revealed the bout, along with a handful of others, in a recent update to the official fight card for the event.

The June 1st event, WEC 34, takes place at the ARCO Arena in Sacramento, California and features a main event featherweight title bout between current champion Uriah Faber and former UFC lightweight champ Jens Pulver. The event will air live on Versus beginning at 9pm ET.

McCullough captured the WEC lightweight belt with a submission win over Kit Cope at WEC 25 in early-2007. Following his first title defense via first round stoppage against Richard Crunkilton at WEC 30 last September, McCullough dropped the 155-pound title in February at WEC 32 to Jamie Varner.

Alexander, who had won five of his first seven professional fights, will look to rebound from a WEC 30 loss to Donald Cerrone. Fortunately for Alexander the submission loss was erased from his record and recorded as a no contest after Cerrone tested positive for a diuretic during a post-event drug tests.

The current official fight card for the event is after the jump…
