Urijah Faber vs. Jens Pulver, WEC Featherweight Championship June 1st!

I can't tell you guys how excited I am for the Faber/Pulver fight coming up in 4 days-

These two are so incredibly important to the sport, because they will be ushering in featherweight division to the mainstream.

As a MMA Blogger, I was invited to join in and listen to the live interviews of both Pulver and Faber, but I was unfortunately too busy at the time- but since this fight means so much to everyone involved in Mixed Martial Arts, I'd thought I'd at least put up some info on these guys and their interview with Sam Caplan (of Five oz. of Pain).
