Sean Shelby New WEC Matchmaker

Post  DRMMA618 on Wed Nov 26, 2008 5:31 pm

"There has been a shake-up in the WEC. Reed Harris and Scott Adams, who owned the promotion before selling it to Zuffa two years ago, and have worked negotiating the contracts and as matchmaker, respectively, are still with the company but no longer in those positions. Sean Shelby, who has been Joe Silva’s matchmaking assistant with UFC, will take over as WEC matchmaker. Silva was the overseer of the WEC matchmaking and will continue in that role. There were a number of things that happened, including not getting Mike Brown on television and built up before his match with Urijah Faber, the contract with Jake Rosholt that mandated his matches always appear on television and probably other things that led to the change. As a trivia note, Shelby is the person who put together the “Teenage Wasteland” music video that plays right before the PPV starts at the major UFC live events."

That's interesting news. That's one of my dream jobs... to be the matchmaker for a major MMA organization.
