Based on reactions throughout the night, this is clearly the main event for the live crowd. It's not even close. Even after a loss, Faber gets a thunderous, superstar reaction. The crowd is louder than for any fighter at Affliction last night except Fedor, and there were around 5,000 more fans at that show. Pulver gets big cheers as well.
Round 1. Faber goes for a kick and Pulver throws him down. Pulver grabs a clinch, but Faber spins him around against the cage. They break. Both men are looking for knees in the clinch. Faber with a left right combo, and Pulver is in trouble. It was a punch to the body that did the most damage, as you could see Pulver wince in pain. Faber follows through with more punches and then grabs a choke for a quick sumission win.
An emotional Pulver is very upset about this one. You have to feel bad for the guy. Matt Hume is doing his best to console Pulver. Pulver gets a big reaction from the crowd after the fight, clearly appreciative of all he has accomplished in the sport (and the fact he's one of the most likeable human beings in MMA).
