Wrong place, wrong time – it’s a thought Leonard Garcia knows well. Misfortune seems to follow him wherever he goes. Fighting in the cage is one of the only times he feels right.



“When it comes time to fight, no matter what happens, for 15 minutes, you’re going to see red, so the doubts to me aren’t in the cage at all,” Garcia said in a recent teleconference for his upcoming fight against Jens Pulver at WEC 36.



Garcia traces his bad luck to an incident when he was 18. He was at a late night diner when an apparently intoxicated man entered the restaurant and tried to shove the food his girlfriend was eating down her throat. At the time, Garcia was a football player at Plainview High in Lubbock, Texas, and wanted to play for Texas Tech University. Garcia confronted the man, who shoved him back.

I'm personally really excited to see Garcia fight Pulver......

Just another one of those fights when you wish you could pick both fighters

I think Garcia will grind this one out. That guy can take some shots.

I've got Pulver by a fine margin.

But I have to say that I have always been impressed with Garcia, the kid has heart and is a game opponent.

Its a hard fight to pick especially because I like both of em'
