Pulver and Not Out

After suffering the 10th loss of his professional MMA career, Jens Pulver gave credit where credit was due. Leonard Garcia didn’t “catch him,” Garcia simply landed one devastating shot after another, and Pulver lost to the better fighter at WEC 36. “Nothing I can say, cause I can’t really tell ya. I don’t know,” Pulver wondered out loud.

When Pulver lost in his final UFC bout against BJ Penn, he knew that he had to add depth to his MMA game. Standing up and exchanging wasn’t all he could rely on anymore, and Penn made that perfectly clear as he easily submitted Pulver.

“I’m trying to start over and learn too, the only difference is that I’m in a ‘Hall of Fame’ situation so I don’t get an amateur career,” Pulver mused.

With back-to-back losses in the WEC, a division that he had previously never lost in, Pulver definitely has a long road ahead of him. Although, the former champion is up to that challenge, and feels that his career is far from done.

“I’m not quitting. I’m not done,” proclaimed the 33-year old veteran.
