Jens Pulver is back with the UFC

Jens PulverThe only 155-pound champion in UFC history is returning to the Octagon.

The Orange County Register reports that Jens "Lil Evil" Pulver has agreed to a contract and fight for the UFC for the first time in four years. According to Dana White, Pulver will also probably help out during season five of The Ultimate Fighter (TUF).

Pulver has fought in PRIDE and most recently the International Fight League while he was away from the Octagon. He's best known for his destruction of B.J. Penn at UFC 35.

Here's a snip from the article:

The biggest thing is I'm taking aim at anyone that thinks they are putting that gold around their waist. That's the bottom line for me right now. I'm going after anyone that thinks they are going to get it. My manager Joe Silva and Dana White get together and tell me who I'm fighting. I don't make that decision. I fight who they tell me to fight, when they tell me to fight and I go after him 100 percent.

Get ready Sean Sherk. Or will it be Kenny Florian? I'm sure we'll find out on July 8 – if not sooner.
