Resurrection Fight Alliance (RFA) held an event this past weekend (Fri., Dec. 16, 2011) in Kearney, Neb., which featured plenty of Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) veterans -- and one legend -- in action.
Unfortunately for that legend, he was viciously knocked out ... again.
I'm talking about Jens Pulver, of course, the "Evil" one who many feel has long overstayed his welcome in mixed martial arts (MMA). He's claimed he wants to go out on his terms and with head head held high.
However, it's impossible to do that when you're face down on a mat in Nebraska with no memory of what just happened to you. Pulver was viciously knocked out by Timothy Elliot in the second round of their bout, pushing Pulver's record to an uninspiring 4-10 in his last 14 fights.
The outcome was much brighter for former UFC heavyweight Gilbert Yvel, who got himself into tip-top shape and moved down to 205-pounds to take on Damian Dantibo, who he proceeded to finish via technical knockout in round one. Justin McCully was also in action, scoring a technical knockout of his own over Justin Grizzard also in the opening frame.
