    I'm gonna go with Jens Pulver mostly because I haven't seen Faber fight.

    I'm gonna give this one to Faber. Not real familiar with either, but I've seen some of Urijah Faber's fights on youtube and he is an animal!!

    Faber is the champ and is very good but Jens has never lost at 145, this should be a great fight.

    I'll go with Faber on this one. Pulver has been a on good roll in his last few fights but Faber's ground game is better. Pulver will have to knock him out to pull the win.

    You are missing out. Urijah is possibly the best fighter I have ever seen in the ring. There is so much talent and athletic ablility it is not even fair sometimes. I will be very shocked if he loses, but anything can happen in the ring. It only takes one mistake and you could be done.

    Finally got to see Faber fight, and y'all might be right. Is the competition as stiff in WEC? I mean, he did put on a good show. He's very fast, strong, AND technical.

    I'm still not changin' my stance. I'm goin' with Pulver. If he loses, I'm just dumb lmao.

    faber is a good fighter and has youth and athletic ability on his side. but pulver is a veteran with lots of big fight experience and he is a whole different breed of cat at 145. should be a great fight.

    Faber is ok, he really hasent impressed me any yet, he hasnt fought really any top of the line fighters yet, we'll see how he does against little evil...

    I've always like BJ Penn, so I haven't been much of a Pulver fan. However, I do like veterans and underdogs so I'll root for "little evil." I'll be highly suprised if he pulls if off though, Faber is a machine.

    Don't forget it's on tonight. Hope it's an exciting fight whoever wins and not a 30 second blowout, I don't particularly care either way, just want it to be a good fight...

    I wasn't sure who was gonna win, but I was pulling for Pulver. One thing that I never expected was for the fight to go to a decision. Faber won every round, but Pulver pulled through some very dangerous situations. Best fight I've seen in a while. I do hope they have a re-match in the future.
