"This fight, I’m anxious to get in there and get it done. To me, the WEC always was the UFC for the little guys. The only difference for me is putting on a set of black gloves, and you get a few more feet to run around in. To fight Urijah, it’s an honor. It’s great. Everybody knows Urijah Faber. He’s a great dude. He’s a great fighter. He’s dangerous in all areas. I can’t wait to test myself against him. As far as his strengths, I think his strengths are in grappling, and with my fighting style, I’m very hard to find in order to take me down. He’s going to have to find me to get me to the ground."
Former WEC Bantamweight Champion Eddie Wineland (via Heavy.com) is ready to strap on the black gloves and "get it done" against Urijah Faber a week from Saturday (March 19) when the 135-pound standouts throw leather at UFC 128: "Shogun vs. Jones" from the Prudential Center in Newark, NJ. Wineland closed out his WEC career on an absolute tear, winning four straight and earning consecutive "Knockout of the Night" bonuses in his last two fights, including his donkey slam on Ken Stone at WEC 53: "Henderson vs Pettis" last December. Can he upset Faber, who will be making just his second appearance at 135-pounds, in the co-main event in "The Garden State?"
