I couldn't believe my eyes! I jumped on the Cub bandwagon after that sick fight with Micah Miller and I thought he was going to kill Pulver. But Pulver showed he got game! I still think his ground game is limited. I think that was more on Swanson underestimating Pulvers ground game and making it suspect like everyone here was and the rest of the fans were too. I don't think that would happen if Swanson would have expected a decent ground game from Pulver.

I just can't see Pulver as champion I'm sorry. He always carries that huge right hand and IMO his ground game is still suspect. If I'm Faber. Still take it to the ground. Just don't underestimate it and not give it enough credit.

This should be a crazy fight. It could be a fast paced war the way Faber likes to go. I still see him subbing Pulver in the 1st!!! Should be a good fight though!!! Seeing how Pulver is actually finally started evolving with the sport...

I could be mistaken w/o lookin up records, but I don't think anyone has ever subbed Jens in the first. BJ couldn't do it. Course BJ never really tried to pull it to the ground the way Faber might, so i guess we'll see.

I really am not that excited about this fight because I think Jens Pulver will get dominated. Look at how well Urijah Faber is at neutralizing the other fighter's power. The only way jens could win would be by catching urijah in a quick mistake submission or to catch faber with a hard shot. I really am rooting for Pulver though because I cannot stand faber after his victory interviews. Plus I have heard Franl Mir have too many orgasms talking about faber.

I have this bad feeling that Faber is over-rated. He hasnt fought top lvl fighters like pulver. the only legit fighter he has faced is tyson griffin and he lost badly. sure griffin is a 155 fighter but i mean pulver has fought some of the top guys at 155 and held his own. If he comes out like he did against curran in rd1, pulver is gonna put him to sleep wth that left hand. I wouldnt be surprised to see him get dominated just like i wasnt surprised when it happened to Filho for the first round.
