The wait is over as the WEC finally confirmed the date for arguably its biggest fight ever.
Urijah "The California Kid" Faber (20-1-0) will defend his featherweight title against MMA legend and former UFC lightweight champion, Jens "Little Evil" Pulver (22-8-1), at the Arco Arena in Sacramento, Calif., on June 1.
Although Faber is regarded as one of the top 145-pounders in the world, Pulver is undefeated in the division (8-0), submitting Cub Swanson in 31 seconds during his WEC debut back in December 2007.
Miguel Torres (33-1-0), fresh off a dominating performance against Chase Beebe to earn the 135-pound strap, will be on the card as well. He will make his first WEC bantamweight title defense against Mexican slugger Manny Tapia (10-0-1), who is coming off a split decision victory over Antonio Banuelos at WEC 32.
WEC 34: "Faber vs. Pulver" will air at 9 p.m. ET on Versus.
This should be one the biggest nights in the short history of the WEC, and it's even a bigger plus for it to take place live on Versus. It's hard to beat watching an MMA legend go against the future of the sport on free TV, right?
