After teammate Jose Aldo conquered the WEC featherweight title, Wagnney Fabiano decided to drop to bantamweight (135lbs, 61kg), as he aspires to the organization’s title and would never consider facing Aldo.
And the Nova Uniao black belt already has a likely date and opponent for his debut in his new weight division. The bout should take place January 10, against Frank Gomez.
Fabiano is coming off a surprising submission loss to Mackens Semerzier in his last match up at featherweight. In Gomez, he'll be facing a Greg Jackson fighter that's pretty well rounded. It'll be interesting to see how Fabiano performs after making the cut to 135lbs.
