After a scheduled middleweight fight vs. Jake Rosholt had to be postponed due to injury combined with World Extreme Cagefighting's announcement that the 185 pound division was going to be disbanded before year's end, it appeared that the WEC career of Danillo Villefort might have been over before it started.
Villefort was a finalist at the International Fight League's 2007 Draft tryouts in New York and debuted for the now-defunct promotion with an upset victory over Mike Massenzio on May 16 in Uncasville, Connecticut. Competing on a one-fight contract, the IFL did not attempt to re-sign Villefort while on the verge of financial collapse and the rising middleweight prospect received an offer from the Zuffa-owned WEC soon after.
Villefort was set to face 185 pounder Jake Rosholt but Rosholt came down with an injury, the fight would have to be postponed. WEC then disbanded they're middleweight division. Villefort dropped down to 170 and took a fight at WEC 38. He defeated Mike Campbell by TKO in the first round.
