Why move the WEC lightweights the UFC?

Today, Dana White confirmed that eventually the WEC lightweight division will merge with the UFC''s lightweight division. You might remember that not too long ago I suggested that it didn't make sense to have both the WEC and the UFC. Well, this is would be one more reason to get rid of the WEC.

I understand that the WEC plans to add one or two lighter weight divisions, but I keep asking myself why add them to the WEC and not to the UFC? If you are going to keep the WEC around, why not have a lightweight division? There are plenty of fighters to fill the roster and it is an exiting division to watch. Someone please explain this to me.
