Urijah Faber vs. Jens Pulver

On June 1 on WEC, the Featherweight champion Urijah Faber takes on Jens Pulver. This should be a very exciting fight considering that they are two of the most (if not the most) exciting fighters in their weight class. Jens Pulver is the veteran and is undefeated in this weight class. He is known in UFC for his hard heavy hits but on his WEC debut, he showed that he is more than a K.O. standup fighter submitting Cub Swanson to an anaconda choke in 35 seconds (yes, only 35 seconds!).
Urijah Faber, on the other hand, is just so innovative and unpredictable. The featherweight champ pulls off moves that I have never seen before. He always seems to be the more offensively aggressive fighter in all of his fights and he never seems to get tired. It doesn't seem like anyone in his division has given him much trouble at all. He is an explosive fighter, but he is also extremely calculated. But he will probably fight his toughest battle against Jens Pulver, who has really seemed to gain this strong killer instinct. Who do I think is taking home the gold? I have no idea but I do know that this will be a killer fight. If you like MMA, you'll love this fight. UFC fans, don't sleep on the WEC. They're bringing some really good fights to the table.
