Jens Pulver Confirms He Is Not Ready To Retire Just Yet

Jens ‘Lil Evil’ Pulver has struggled in recent times to relive the form of his early years which saw him become the UFC’s first lightweight champion.   He his last four fights have all ended in defeat, and after his most recent loss to Josh Grispi in just 33 seconds at WEC 41 in June many believed that it was time for the popular fighter to hang up his gloves.

After taking time out, and getting married, it now appears however that ‘Lil Evil’ still has the urge to compete, and is ready to fight again in 2010.

WEC manager Reed Harris stopped short of saying that he would fight for the promotion again when he spoke to Fighters Only Magazine recently, but did admit that Pulver is looking to return.

“We’re talking to Jens. I cant confirm anything right now but Jens has indicated to us that he would like to fight again, I can tell you that.”

Now Pulver (21-12-1) has posted a message on his Facebook page, stating, “Tomorrow I start training camp,” which appears to confirm that he will indeed step into the cage at least one more time, though no opponent or date has been set at this stage.
