WEC News: Jens Pulver vs. Leonard Garcia at WEC 36

Leonard Garcia has had a tough year.  He has been arrested on drug chrages.  Those charges have since been dropped.  Garica looked great in his WEC featherweight debut against Hiroyuki Takaya and looks to get back and continue his climb into contention.  A win over Jens Pulver would put him right into the number one contender spot and set up a possible fight with WEC featherweight champ Urijah Faber.  Pulver has struggled of late and is coming off of a loss to Faber.   Garcia today told MMAjunkie.com that he’s agreed to the bout, which could be finalized as early as this week.   This should be a good fight.

WEC 36 is shaping up to be a good fight as well.  It will air on VERSUS on September 10th.  The card will feature a middleweight title fight with Paulo Filho and Chael Sonnen, which is a re-match of a previous fight that Sonnen feel was stopped too early.  Also, Urijah Faber willr eturn and defend his belt against Mike Brown.  Also, Jake Rosholt is expected to make his WEC debut on this card.  The WEC is putting on some great cards lately and is doing it with relativley few big name fighters.
