The biggest little fight in WEC history!

The UFC just sent out a completely unneccessary UFC83 hype email so they could also tack on an advertisement for the Faber vs Pulver mega-match that’s happening June 1st at the Arco Arena. Yup, that’s right: no more Hard Rock, which is great news to me because that place was about the worst venue in fighting history. Jason Mayhem Miller once likened the vibe to “wrestling at a high school meet”.

I’m still kinda surprised that the WEC has decided to go balls out with a place the size of the Arco Arena though. Does Sacremento not have a place bigger than 1500 but smaller than 15,000? Or does Zuffa expect a miracle from Urijah Faber’s smile and ass-chin? Considering the scale of this show, you’d think the WEC would throw all the champions who aren’t likely to be in rehab onto the card, but as it stands it’s just the bantamweight and featherweight belts on the line.

    Faber’s ass chin is second to none, and yeah, I think the ass chin can bring in the peeps.

    Don’t care, I already got my tickets after J-Bre broke news that Noguiera is gonna fight Leonard Garcia. HOLY SHIT.

    Shit they could hold the title fight in his ass chin and fit about 3k people.

  • godzillad

    Shit. I jinxed it. Well, now I can’t see Garcia fight unless he can do it from a cell.

    Cocaines a helluva drug.

    He’s on cocaine? Damn it to hell! When he faught Huerta, that was an exciting fight. I was hoping to see him in the UFC again. Remember kiddies, drugs are bad, m’kay.

    they both look goofy as hell in this pic

  • Xavier

    Nice. Hard Rock as a venue always looks like shit on Versus, otherwise WEC has put on a good night of fights the last three outings. This should be a good event, I’m starting to look forward to them as much as I do UFC fight nights.

    Arco is big AND cozy at the same time. Perfect venue. But you’ve never been there, so you wouldn’t know.

  • Matt (but I signed up as Mr. Unbelievable Pants)

    I am very, very excited about this fight. PUMPALISED! The last WEC was fucking awesome.
