“I’m really excited…This is a great opportunity for me. It’s been a while since I’ve fought in my hometown. This size of venue, it’s gonna be huge. It’s at the Arco Arena, fighting Jens Pulver, who is a bad dude…They’ve (Zuffa-Fertitta brothers) done a great job of promoting me and I’ve been around this sport for a while now and been around (Sacramento) most of my life… I’m happy they have the faith to bring the event to Sacramento…June 1, Jens Pulver, former UFC champion, and far as I’m concerned, a legend in this sport, vs. me, Urijah Faber, ‘California Kid,’ the #1 featherweight in the world. It’s gonna be amazing.”
