This will be awesome. And Torres will fight Tapia.
I already can't wait.

Pulver doesn't stand a chance.

Pulver will destroy him, I cannot believe so many people actually think Faber stands a chance

Yeah I like Jens but Faber is younger and much more multi-dimensional than Pulver. Only thing Jens can hope for in my opinion is to put on a good show and make it last a few rounds, but then hey upsets do happen.

Since his TKO loss against Griffin in 2005, Faber fought maybe two decent opponents.

if faber beats pulver, then i think we will start to have the same discussion with faber as we have had recently with anderson silva. who could beat him? the guy seems pretty unbeatable. curran had his back for a good three minutes and couldn't do much of anything.

Depends on how quickly Jens recovers from the 1st round Body-slam and if he can defend the GNP then he'll lose in the 2nd instead of the 1st.
War Faber!

Pulver Round One KO, Faber is buying into his own hype and will be over confident in his stand up game, as such.... little evil will KHTFO... even if im wrong i still got Jens FTW, experiance over youth!

I like the way you think. This is a tough fight to call, I really want to see Lil' Evil win. Faber, hasn't fought the best of the best like Pulver. Pulver should not be counted out, I'm also hoping for a 1st Rd. KO win for Jens!

I've been waiting for this fight since Jens loss to Penn after TUF....

Jens is easily one of the best featherweight / lightweight fighters there have ever been but Faber is just dominating the division in a VERY aggressive style.....

I take Urijah by Submission 2nd round....

Good luck to Jens....

I expect Pulver to take this fight. If Faber wins then I will be very impressed with him.
