I completely, 100% agree.

Pulver, however, has that always present puncher's chance though. Don't forget that. He can put any FW on their back with one left hand.

I disagree, i think your underestimating pulver at 145. remember he is 8-0 at 145. hes a dangerous fighter.

Pulver is a very dangerous fighter at 145! Especially after that loss to BJ. That woke him up I think and he can be a force if he were to work on his subs and he seemed to have done that. He said himself, "enough of the left hand". If he fights with this attitude I think he can cause trouble for anyone. Especially at 145 where he isn't giving his opponent the size advantage every time. It's not like he's going to lose the left hand but if he works on improving his subs he will cause fits for Faber with his solid wrestling base.

Pulver may have been working on subs and his ground game, but it may be too little too late. Faber is a younger, faster, stronger, better fighter than him. While I think that Pulver is top 5 at 145, Faber is top 2 (Yamamoto is number one); Faber will win this fight.

I think Pulver is stronger, hes going to knock the california kid into the next century! Will be a great fight, i can't wait to watch Pulver steal the crown... Its great to have him back in his own weight class after so long! Anyone know when this fight might take place?

I think Pulver wins this fight by KO. Apparently Pulver has a good sprawl, he stopped and even subbed Cub Swanson while sprawling. He's apparently been working on grappling, which is good, because the ko power is always going to be there. As strong as Faber is I think that Jens can keep it on the feet, and eventually knock Faber out.

Since the next WEC card is in February, I'm guessing this one will be in late April early May. It'll probably have another Paulo Filho fight on it, and maybe Chase Beebee if he's not on the card in February.

Pulver wins in dominating fashion ; faber will never see him coming because of post like " Pulver has no chance of winning" its obvious that hes going to underestimate him

Huge build up will end up leaving Jens face down on the canvas after getting rear-naked choked......but it will bring alot of attention to the WEC which is a good thing

Pulver is finally fighting in the right weight division and he looked great against Cub. The dude submitted him in under a min! I think people are crazy to count out Jens, but I agree that Faber is the favorite.

I was quite impressed with how Faber was able to weather the storm in the 1st round against Curran and get the submission victory. Curran's a tough dude to finish. Imagine Kid vs. Faber, that would be a sick fight (although I think Kid would win decisively).
