The fight card for WEC ‘Faber vs . Pulver” has been officially announced and includes several intriguing matches. The obvious and main event bout is a Featherweight battle between current Champion, Uriah Faber and veteran MMA talent Jens Pulver. The fight will be a defining one for both fighters as they look to cement themselves as the best Featherweight MMA fighter in the world.
For Pulver, it would be the realization of a dream to return to MMA and become a Champion, while Faber has an opportunity to take down an icon of the sport and a fighter who is undefeated at Featherweight, further legitimizing his recognition as one of the sports absolute elite fighters.
“Razor” Rob McCullough also returns to the cage for the first time since losing his Lightweight title to former UFC fighter Jamie “The Worm” Varner. The fight against Varner was a barn burner and although McCullough got caught in the third round, he still looked great in the fight. His opponent, Kenneth “The Machine” Alexander looks to be outmatched considering he has only one prior fight in the WEC and he lost that one by first round submission to Donald Cerrone. Well actually, it is officially a No Contest result, as Cerrone later tested positive for a banned diuretic substance and was stripped of the win. More important than the substance abuse storyline is the fact that this is a rematch from a 2002 bout that McCullough lost to Alexander early in his career. This is a fight that McCullough obviously would like to get back, while Alexander will want to prove he deserved the win over the former champ.
Jeff Curran also returns in an under-card appearance against a very game Mike Brown.
This should be a great card overall, with lots of wide open fighting to entertain the fans.
