Big MMA Weekend!
Image from Sherdog
Not only is Kimbo fighting James Thompson this weekend on primetime (CBS May 31 at 9-11 p.m. ET/PT) but Jens Pulver is fighting Urijah Faber at WEC 34 on June 1st.
Kimbo vs. Thompson
Thompson has his work cut out for him as Kimbo is steadily improving under the watchful eye of Bas Rutten. I remember watching Thompson, who has tons of energy and was very hyper in the ring, lose via a quick knockout to Fedor’s brother Aleksander, but since then he has gone on to a solid 14-8-0 record. Kimbo, at 2-0, is fighting to establish his legitimacy in the heavyweight ranks and at the same time, progressively picking his opponents as his skills develop. Kimbo has gone from a homeless guy, to youtube sensation to living his dreams. I think this fight is not only a great opportunity for both fighters, but also the sport of MMA. Being on prime time tv will continue to increase the exposure of a great sport.
Here is a cool story on Kimbo for ESPN the Magazine: http://sports.espn.go.com/espnmag/story?id=3405201
Faber vs. Pulver
Faber, 20-1-0, is explosive, young and hungry. This is already his 5th title defense of the WEC Featherweight title. Jens is in need of a win and would love to get a title again. This will, without a doubt, be a quick, fast-paced fight – so don’t blink! Watch on June 1st on Versus.
Special Note: At the 1:20 mark in the video, Jens talks about training his GRIP and how he hits harder than ever (notice the KB’s in the background).
