    He also escapes from having his back taken with incredible ease, and ends up pounding you out from inside your guard.

    Agreed. Faber's thousand mile per hour riddum, quite often in his scramble, has saved him many times.

    I really want Jens to win, but I think the odds are in Faber's favor (say that three times fast).

    The Bibiano-Faber fight showed a big hole in Faber's skill set (one which has been seen before). Faber shucked Bibiano off to land an elbow, opening a cut that ended the fight, but Bibano was all over Faber.

    He's not the unstoppable wrecking machine some are making him out to be.
    Also, while it was a long time ago, Pulver was a better ammy-wrestler than Faber. Pulver, unfortunately left that behind awhile ago.

    My buddy talked to Pulver at Rite-Aide the yesterday - he said he feels like he did when he was twenty-five, super-strong and super-confident. Apparently he looked pretty good and was smiling a lot.

    It's a toss up. I'm going to have to put my money on Faber, granted, he seems to have a lot of trouble with anyone bigger than him (and pulver will probably be cutting from 170ish), but since he started fighting solely for the WEC he's become an absolute wrecking ball.

    Faber via submission.

    I havent been that impressed with Faber's opposition yet. I am not too sure of pulver's ground game, but I know pulver should be able to outstrike him any day of the week. He has amazing hands.

    now that i think about it, really, he hasn't really fought anyone on Pulver's level...

    but still, i think faber can do it.

    Pulver will be cutting from 170?!? That's Rich Franklin-like cutting there.

    if by 170ish we mean 152ish, then sure.

    I really like Pulver, I do... but there is just no way he makes it out of this with anything but a loss.

    Faber is going to slam him repeatedly and then submit him in round 2. So sayeth I.

    Jeff Curran is the only non-can Faber has subbed, and the last time Pulver got submitted by anyone not named "BJ" was in 2000. Faber may win this but if he subs Pulver he's better than his opposition reflects.

    Personally, I think Pulver is going to outwrestle him and land repeated punches to the cleft in his chin, but it's a pick 'em fight when you really look seriously at their records and abilities.
