Pulver vs. Garcia: Get Pumped

Watching this NBC Sports video preview of tonight’s Jens Pulver-Leonard Garcia bout, I am officially psyched. You have to love Pulver’s ‘I’m getting too old for this shit’ attitude when it comes to fighting these young whipper-snappers, just as you also have to love that he arrives at the event looking like he stopped to fight in several bar parking lots on the way. I’ve never seen a guy so content in the role of gatekeeper or so compelling in it.

With Urijah Faber facing another tough, though probably doomed opponent, and with Paulo Filho showing up too fat to put his title on the line, Pulver-Garcia is looking like it could easily turn out to be the fight of the night. In fact, I’m so confident this bout will deliver, if it turns out to be anything other than a thriller I’ll eat my hat.*

* my hat is a meatball sub.

not much of a thriller...looks like that hat will come in handy for once, this belt on the other hand just keeps me popular with the neighborhood dogs

Did you hear that Hot Dog Feet? This guys got a meatball sub hat. You two should hook up.

I like Pulver, however, I think his window of opportunity is closing quickly, while Garcia seems to have at least ten minutes or so left. Although, time flies when on booger sugar. Does the WEC test for that?

"I’ve never seen a guy so content in the role of gatekeeper or so compelling in it."

"Gatekeeper" F*ck off! He's a contender. Garcia will be the "Gatekeeper" after this fight for sure. What is wrong with you???
yes!- November 4, 2008 at 11:07 pm
i disagree that pulver is comfy in the role of gatekeeper. i think he is realist and knows it and is trying to break out of it. reallexcited for this fight. sweet.

Sherdog posted that Filho will hand over his belt to Chael if he loses, weather that actually holds up in the WEC, who knows.

I really like Jens, but he sounds like he's been drinking in that interview.
