WEC Varner vs Cerreone & Faber vs Pulver!

It is time again for some good matches in the WEC. After the Faber vs Brown upset last year Faber is going back against one of his toughest opponents – Jens Pulver. Both Faber and Pulver are coming off of losses so this should promise to be a good fight. WEC 38 promises to have some good fights. 

 

I saw Miguel Torres against Manny Tapia last year amazed at Torres’s bag of tricks… As I recall he did an axe kick (just missing) shortly before ending the bought – totally dominating Tapia in WEC 37.

 

 



 

I end up watching more of the WEC as I used to watch Pride because it is on free TV. I would like to watch UFC but in this economy I cannot bring myself to spend $50 bucks on a fight. WEC 38 is in San Diego but I don’t want to sit up in the top levels and see very little when my easy chair gets a great view in my living room.

 

This is why I am more familiar with the WEC fighters than the UFC. I know Frank Mir as a great referee more so than as a fighter because I mostly watch the WEC. I’m going to have to do something about this soon as I know I am missing out on some great UFC fights (except for the occasional replays on free TV.

 

Anyway WEC 39 promises to be good too as Brown vs Garcia & Condit vs Larson. I really enjoy seeing Carlos Condit fight. He looks like a skinny kid but he is more like an Anaconda in the ring!

 

Enjoy the fights!

    Just watched the fight between Mirko Filipovic and Mir, sorry but it was the booring combat ever zzzzzzzzz

    Hey Wyatt! I watched the fight yesterday and was similarly unimpressed! I think Mir worked his game tentatively so as to not get knocked out by a leg kick… Krocop was even more defensive… I don’t think he threw more than five kicks… spent most of his time defending against the take down attempts.

    Fights like this are only good if you are the winner. :)
