Retirement option: Is there 'a little chicken left on that bone' for Jens Pulver?




"It's just a tough career man, you know I lose eight of nine fights, it's like 'What am I doing?' I'm trying to figure it out, maybe it's just that time. I don't know man, I do it because I love it. I enjoy training and I enjoy going out there and fighting. I feel good [but] it's definitely frustrating.You gotta hear the entrance song I came out to: 'A Little Chicken Left On That Bone' by Craig Morgan and that's exactly what it's about. Nobody's gonna tell me when to retire. Again, I got caught in a damn guillotine. I'm not getting knocked dead asleep and I feel physically great. I'm having a great time. I'm 34-years-old and I'm slumping, I'm slumping hard right now but I'm still having a great time. I love this life and I love this job."

Former UFC lightweight champion and ex-WEC featherweight contender Jens Pulver talks about his career options after losing his lightweight fight against Diego Garijo on the "War on the Mainland" pay-per-view card from Bren Events Center on Aug. 14 in Irvine, California. The submission loss to "El Nino" marks his eight defeat in nine fights and extended his losing streak to six. Is there anything left for "Lil' Evil?" Or should he start looking for a job outside of fighting? Any fans standing behind his decision to keep competing?
