Jens Out of WEC 30
Sources close to the famed Miletich camp have reportedly told Sherdog.com that a knee injury - and apparently not a staph infection - will keep Jens Pulver from making his WEC debut against Cub Swanson on September 5.
The injury was suffered last Friday, and Jens is scheduled to have an MRI later this week and will undergo either surgery or rehab, depending on the MRI results. There has been no official word just yet from WEC management (I'll keep checking), and a new opponent for Cub Swanson has not yet been confirmed.
According to WECDaily.com, John Alessio vs. Marcelo Brito, Ian McCall vs. Coty Wheeler, and Bryan Baker vs. Jesse Forbes are rumored to be a part of the WEC 30 card.
