Jens “Little Evil” Pulver has lost 3 straight and has lost 5 out of his last 6 fights. Most fighters would take this sign and hang it up, but not Jens. It is no doubt that Pulver is one of the most important lightweights in the history of the sport, but it appears that his career could be coming to a close. I say appears because that is only if you are looking at his glass as half empty. In Pulver’s eyes the glass may not appear half full, but it is certainly not empty. In his most recent blog entry on his website, Pulver had this to say about his future in the sport:
“I meant what I said I am not done, I am gonna stay the course cause I believe in AMC and Matt Hume. I know that I am improving and I know that what I am learning out there is relevant and I will come back from all this. My life has been a roller coaster full of ups and downs, but it is a ride I am not ready to get off of just yet. I am too Driven and enjoy being around the fans too much to pack it in just yet. I hope all is well with all of you.”
Jens Pulver began fighting in the UFC well before many of the current fighters on the roster. Although he has been around awhile don’t call him old. At worst you could call him seasoned. In his illustrious career he is 22-11-1. He has wins over B.J. Penn, Cub Swanson, Robert Emerson, Caol Uno, and Joe Stevenson. He has been a coach on the UFC’s reality show The Ultimate Fighter, and is a face of the old school Miletich camp. He is one of those fighters that you can’t help but like. At this point in time it is unknown who Pulver will take on next, but he now has an upward climb in the future if he wants another title shot.
