Leonard Garcia’s win against Jens Pulver at this Wednesday’s WEC 36 brought an end of sorts to a long period of struggling in his life. Seven months ago, the Lubbock, Texas native was looking at jail time as part of a federal drug trafficking indictment. A promising young featherweight in a rising organization, the charges threatened to put a halt to Garcia's career before it blossomed. Eventually, he was cleared of the charges, but still may have to do a year of probation for refusing to assist the authorities’ investigation.

Garcia knew a victory could be a benchmark in his career. He knew that in life, as in fighting, anything could happen at any moment; the opportunity could not be wasted.

“Fighting Jens, I knew it was going to be a good fight,” he said. “I thought it was going to be a little more drug out, but I trained really hard for this, and I think it’s a life changing fight. That’s kind of the approach I took for it, and it worked out for me.”

Their encounter was surprisingly short. Pulver, lining up for a KO with his straight left, walked right into a pair of hooks from Garcia. The shots visibly wobbled Pulver, and Garcia charged in to finish. It was over in 72 seconds.

Brown will take this by decision. He will overpower Garcia and grind out a nice win via better wrestling.

Garcia vs. Brown should be an all out slugfest.
Theoretically it should be one of the best fights of all time.
Of course it could end in seconds...you never know.
If that fight goes to the judges....it will be one to remember.

Personally I think that Urijah has earned an automatic rematch...

I couldn't agree more. Urijah made a mistake going for a crazy elbow and got floored by a punch, and I mean floored, but he deserves an instant rematch, and I'll take Urijah in that fight.

As far as Brown vs. Garcia: I have to say, I haven't seen Brown enough to make a legitimate statement, but think it would be a war. Brown looks tough and Garcia is in a great nipple twisting camp that is on a great winning streak, and has fought tough competition prior to his drop to 145.
