We jumped in the car about 10am and headed out to the Arco Arena located in sunny Sacramento California. Sam Diggs and I locked in our media passes
and made our way straight to the catering and loaded up on some great food. Making our way to our seats, we noticed that the place was packed and ready for the hometown boy Urijah Faber. The undercard fights we re good…but the Miguel Torres vs. Yoshiro Maeda fight was off the chain
Miguel and Yoshiro went toe to toe until Torres sealed Maeda’s eye shut and the fight was called off in the 3rd round. The Arco arena was packed with anticipation for the Urijah Faber and Jens Pulver fight and they were not to be disappointed. Favorite Faber lived up to his quickness and power while Jens Pulver held his ground and gave it his all, it was Faber that received the unanimous decision
Keeping the World FeatherWeight Belt firmly around his waist
Back at the press conference, Jens Pulver brought down the house with his emotional testimony of how his life had changed and what being a family man meant to him…there wasn’t a dry eye in the house. I think I am going to name my next kid Jens…
Once again as Faber took the stage, he commanded the respect of the press as he answered the barrage of “what next” questions..to which he aptly replied…” I am ready for anyone and anything, for the time being I am going to travel the world and be a rockstar”
Insane fights, great seats and awesome company…the UFC/WEC knows how to put on a fight!
