The classical music blasting over the phone as I waited on hold for a World Extreme Cagefighting conference call was a real disconnect.

And the swapping of compliments from one fighter to the other was another, given that they plan to annihilate each other in a cage over the weekend.

But even given all that, Jens Pulver and reigning champion Urijah Faber made it clear that WEC 34 will be anything but a waltz. The June 1 battle for the featherweight title has consumed their lives, and rightly so. Heading into the biggest bout of both fighters' careers, neither are denying the case and both are out to prove just why.

"I don't see the fight going 25 minutes," said Pulver. "At 145, I've knocked everybody out except for one submission. I think I've been in the third round once at 145. At the end of the day, I'm looking to win this fight by knockout. I'm taking the belt home. Period."

I am easily more interested in this event than EliteXC. I hope it goes the distance though. These guys are very exciting.

Love the David Spade Avatar btw

I am super excited for this fight. This one alone is better than the whole EliteXC card!
