“He’s super dedicated to what he does whether it be training for fighting, or supporting his guys in their fights. He’s respectful to his opponents, and doesn’t underestimate them. His training is excessive; a regimen that many would be and are hard pressed to keep up with. Some would call it overtraining, but to him it’s his every day thing, whether he has a fight coming up or not. The training level he kept up with this trip I took to see him was no more than when I went last august to sac and he didn’t have an impending fight. He’s got a funny sense of humor and a great rapport with the guys he trains.”

MMA photographer Tracy Lee recently tailed WEC Featherweight Champion Urjiah Faber during a few days of training as he prepares for his showdown with former UFC lightweight champion Jens Pulver at the Arco Arena in Sacramento, Calif., on June 1. “The California Kid” appears to be in top form and will be more than ready for Lil Evil on fight night.

I don't know. I'd put BJ Penn there, too.

That being said I think Urijah Faber is a phenomenal athlete. I've been so stoked for this fight to happen for so long. I really don't even know who to go with on this one. I feel like Pulver will tool up Urijah Faber on the feet, but that Faber will have a huge advantage on the ground and in the clinch.

I really couldn't agree with you more Jackelope, not that im trying to compare Faber to Swanson but Jens can be just as unperdictable as the next guy and hopefully he has trained hard and is ready for anything, because Faber sure will be!

I take Faber on this one. I think he will have to eat a few hard shots first though.
