Jens Pulver vs Leonard Garcia WEC fight official for September 10

jens pulver vs leonard garcia WEC
Former UFC lightweight champion Jens Pulver will return to 145-pound action against Leonard Garcia at WEC 36 at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino on September 10, according to an announcement today.

In fact, the showdown was among several bouts confirmed for the first-ever show for the promotion in the "Sunshine State." To check them all out click here.

Pulver recently lost a five-round fight to current featherweight champion Urijah Faber. It was the first loss for him at his natural weight. "Lil Evil" won his WEC debut, submitting Cub Swanson with a nifty choke just seconds into round one.

He was rumored to face Alexandre Noguiera until he was suspended for a failed drug test.

With "Pequeno" out of the picture, insert Leonard Garcia who also has a lot to prove. Garcia debuted with WEC in Febuary with a first round technical knockout over Hiroyuki Takaya. The celebration was short lived, however, when Garcia was arrested for alleged participation in a drug-ring in Texas.

Since then, Garcia has been cleared of most if not all of the charges and has the green light to resume life as he knows it as a fighter.

WEC 36 is headlined with a championship doubleheader -- Mike Brown will challenge featherweight king Urijah Faber and 185-pound champ Paulo Filho will rematch Chael Sonnen for the WEC middleweight title.

The main card will air live on the Versus network at 9 p.m. ET on fight night.
