Jens Pulver Says The Sport of MMA is Done with Him
 

Rauno 10-18-2010 05:25 PM

His lost his last what.. like 7 or so? I don't see much of a future for him in the MMA anymore. Sad, but true.

mmaswe82 10-18-2010 06:38 PM

yea kinda sad since he not THAT old, 35 is over the hill for many but like you said he's lost like 6 of his last fights with one win and 2 losses before that. Im pretty sure its safe to say he's done. Feel kinda bad for the guy.

Why feel bad for an MMA Legend? He had his run, he fought his heart out, and he got old. He is talking about much more than fighting here in this video though... And that's the sad part.

Thank god for that, guy should have retired like a year or so ago. He's lost his last 7 fights in the 1st round or something, he's getting as bad as Mark Kerr for gods sake.

yea true, he's had his time of greatness and all, but somehow it seems he would like to continue and just isn't able to anymore. I wish him luck with whatever he does.

The nicest guy and biggest fan to ever hold a ufc belt.

Hanging out with him before and after ufc 33 was the greatest experience for me that a fan could ever have.

Back then all of the fighters were extremely aware of the attempts that had come before, like real wrestling, kickboxing, full contact karate, all miserable failures simply because no one showed up and paid to watch.

When those guys found out you had traveled across the country and paid out big money to watch them perform,it was like they put you on a pedestal and they were your fans. None more than Jens. Signing an autograph thrilled him like a kid at Christmas.

I hope he finds a place. Personally I think he's a great commentator.

hehe, I think I cracked the hint you made about what MMA star you've smoked with @ UFC 33

Yeah, Pulver hopefully has gotten the hint that if he keeps going he's going to end up like Ken Shamrock. He can still contribute to MMA but he's probably done as a fighter. There are things that could be worse than that!:(

Except I said they weren't champs then :). Jens was fighting that week but there was a lot of guys there who weren't. The mma world was smaller then and each show was a huge deal. Everybody was there.

I got to spend a week hanging out with the whole miletich team and meeting all of the fighters.

Best vacation ever.
